1885. Peerless cook Eugenie has worked for the famous gourmet Dodin for the last 20 years. As time went by, the practice of gastronomy and mutual admiration turned into a romantic relationship.  Their association gives rise to dishes, one more delicious than the next, that confound even the world’s most illustrious chefs.
