We’re thrilled to kick off a new season of Film to Table with the ultimate food film: Babette’s Feast. The beloved Oscar-winning classic is a lovingly layered tale of a French housekeeper with a mysterious past who brings quiet revolution in the form of one exquisite meal to a circle of starkly pious villagers in late 19th-century Denmark. The film combines earthiness and reverence in a moving depiction of sensual pleasure that goes to your head like fine champagne.
Afterward, join us upstairs in the Jane Peck Gallery to enjoy a delectable tasting menu, specially crafted for the evening by Le Jardin Du Roi, Chappaqua.
Le Jardin du Roi, which started as an authentic French Bistro in 2001, has evolved over the years to cater to the needs of its local clientele. With amazing Latin chefs, along with an award-winning BBQ chef, they’ve transitioned to a more “world fusion” cuisine, while still pushing out French favorites like coq au vin, beef bourguignon & steak, and mussel frites. With the passage of over 22 years of dedicated food service, Le Jardin du Roi continues to strive to offer whatever its patrons desire.
