Absolutely charming in parts - like when the students have to 'sell' the dish. However, unfortunately no matter how good the performances are, this boils down to a while savour story and I felt less engaged as the film went on. Imagine if a black actress like Aïssa Maïga had the role of the chef. How different even the same script would have felt. Yes, there was a nod to using the brigade's cultures in the menu (I think) - for example the Proustian dish on the final menu (but what was it?). I thought the phone call with the students mother had possibilities when she mentioned all the spices he/they used. Maybe the menu would at least sprin in their direction, but sadly, no. The actors were charming but it;s time to tell another story.
