BENJAMIN VOISIN TO LEAD
APPLE'S 19TH CENTURY CULINARY SERIES CAREME
Apple has announced that Benjamin Voisin will lead their new French historical original series CAREME on the famous 19th century chef turned spy. Set in the 19th century, the eight episode series, directed by
Martin Bourboulon who helmed The Three Musketeers, will follow the sprawling story of Antonin Carême, who rose from humble beginnings in Paris to the height of culinary stardom in Napoleon’s Europe. He not only became an iconic chef, he also became a spy for France as his talent and ambitions attracted the attention of powerful politicians, including Napoleon. The series will shed light on the miserable reality of 19th century kitchens, contrasting with the opulence of the mansions and sophisticated of aristocrats. Jérémie Renier will play Charles-Maurice de Talleyrand-Périgord, a Machiavellian diplomat who was minister of foreign
affairs in the government of Napoleon Bonaparte; and Lyna Khoudri will appear as Henriette, Carême’s lover and most dangerous threat. The series is inspired by Ian Kelly book “Cooking for Kings: The Life of Antonin Carême – The First Celebrity Chef”!
