The massively talented and very beautiful Stéphane Audran has died, aged 85 (27th March, 2018). She was best known outside of France for her role in Babette's Feast which won the Oscar for "Best Foreign Film".
This is my third favourite film, after Fellini's La Strada and Mike Leigh's Secrets and Lies. As a cook / chef and upholder of the shared table, this film has a deeply significant meaning for me.
More to come - about the film, about the book, about the menu, about the dinner service, about foraging, about the dress, about Karen Blixen.....

Well she was 85 but it still seems a loss.

So sadly farewell to a woman who was pure class both on and off the screen and whom I fancied madly in all those tight Charbol tales of murder and misdeeds. I did not know then that they were a couple. Am I correct in thinking that Claude survives her Catherine?
