On the desolate coast of Denmark live two beautiful daughters of a devout clergyman. Both girls sacrifice youthful passion to faith and duty even after their father's death. When Babette arrives, life for the sisters and their hamlet begins to change. Soon, Babette has convinced them to try something outrageous - a gourmet French meal - which scandalises the local elders. Who is this strangely talented Babette terrifying this pious town with the prospect of losing their souls for enjoying earthly pleasure? Followed by an introduction.
