NessieNos said:
The story centers on a French woman who served as chef to Francois Mitterand in the palace for several years. She's a terrific character, strong but not shrill, and unfazed by all the bullying male chefs at the palace. Meanwhile, a female journalist from Australia is trying to do a profile of her, and they have a key conversation about truffle farming and the chef's future plans. Men don't enter into it at all. (Note: This film was released in France in 2012 as "Les saveurs du Palais," but in America, it's a 2013 release under this title.)
