CINECAFE: MOVIE YOU SEE & TASTE "VATEL"
Wednesday 23rd November - Doors 7.30PM - Movie starts 7.45PM
Starring Uma Thurman, Gerard Depardieu and Tim Roth, VATEL is based on the life of 17th-century French chef François Vatel – it’s the story of an ordinary man, a decadent king, and the woman caught between them! In the west of France, Prince de Conde has a scheme to save his bankrupt province: he'll regain the favour of King Louis XIV with a weekend of spectacle and merriment. The plan's success rests with Vatel, the one man who can deliver sumptuous food, elaborate amusements, and all-out decadence fit for this king. But in the midst of it all, Vatel catches the eye of the beautiful Anne ... and places himself in direct competition with the King! As Vatel is deemed the Grandfather of French Gastronomy, this is hailed as the movie that put French haute cuisine back in the limelight.
Tickets: €15 – includes movie and “tastes” from the movie.
Spaces limited so booking essetial.
