This offbeat film takes place in a small village in France, where the owner of a famous restaurant is threatened by a distinctly different Indian restaurant opening up too close for comfort. The initial hostilities evaporate, however, once she realises just how talented the opposing chef is, and that they have much to teach each other. A bit of romance between the Indian and one of her pretty assistants helps seal the deal.
