Do you have a favorite movie? One that touches your heart, lightens your imagination?
Babette's Feast inspires me to do my best, trying over and over again, to be simple and kind.
The director Gabriel Axel isn't a chef or a gourmet. Cooking is just a pretext to serve moral values and virtues.
As Achille Papin said: "Throughout the world sounds one long cry from the heart of the artist: Give me the chance to do my very best."
I'm no artist or cook, but, next year, I will try to make my family happier with our simple food, just improving the seasoning "à la Babette".
