About this event

For our March French Impressions, Pot au Feu (original title), a story about love inside and out of the kitchen, Jon Davies will be tempting us with a series of clips demonstrating the French love. some say obsession, with cooking.  A rich diet, he warns!

The Taste Of Things (12A) - Peerless cook Eugenie (Juliette Binoche) has worked for the famous gourmet Dodin (Benoît Magimel) for the last 20 years. Bonding over a passion for gastronomy and mutual admiration, their relationship develops into romance and gives rise to delicious dishes that impress even the world's most illustrious chefs. But Eugenie is fond of her freedom and has never wanted to marry Dodin. So, he decides to do something he has never done before: cook for her.
