Le Chef: Self-taught aspiring chef Jacky (Michaël Youn) has the talent, but not the luck. Star chef Alexandre Lagarde (Jean Reno) is in danger of losing his reputation, along with his beloved restaurant. Fate brings the two together and helps them along a journey through the intoxicating world of French haute-cuisine. A legend in his own time, Lagarde is in serious conflict with Stanislas Matter (Julien Boisselier), the new CEO of the group that owns his restaurant, Cargo Lagarde. Matter is plotting to destroy Lagarde's reputation so that he'll have grounds to fire Lagarde and move the restaurant away from Lagarde's classic French cuisine towards trendy molecular gastronomy. Desperate to cling to his status as a Three Star chef (a rarity in the fine dining world), Lagarde teams up with Jacky and together they try to find the balance between tradition and trends.
