In 1889 France, The Taste of Things invites viewers into the world of Dodin Bouffant (Benoit Magimel), a chef living with his devoted personal cook and lover, Eugénie (Juliette Binoche). Despite their shared passion for gastronomy and a deep history of love, Eugénie hesitates to marry Dodin. Determined to win her over in a unique way, Dodin embarks on a culinary journey he’s never undertaken before: cooking for her. This epicurean tale serves up a delectable seven-course love story that tantalizes the senses. Over two decades, Dodin and Eugénie’s romance blossoms alongside their remarkable culinary creations, impressing even the most discerning palates. As Dodin faces Eugénie’s reluctance to commit, he turns to the kitchen to express his affection in a way that transcends words.

“The Taste of Things is marinated in warm sunlight,
bottles of red wine, sweat from a hard day's work
and a touching comfort between lovers.”
- Amanda Luberto, Arizona Republic

“The Taste of Things is essentially a love letter to food
and cooking; to what it feels like to sip a soup that is reminiscent of a sonata’s development ; to the sensual nature of food; to the simple joy of making something side-by-side with a loved one.”
- Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
