"En un aislado pueblo de pescadores en la costa danesa, la comunidad practica, en el sentido más estricto, los principios religiosos que el pastor ha predicado durante años. Cuando éste muere, sus dos hijas continúan adelante con su obra y su palabra. En 1871, durante la guerra franco-prusiana, una joven francesa encuentra refugio en el austero hogar de las dos hermanas. Su llegada al pueblo representa la aparición del extraño en el paraíso. A pesar de que la joven convive durante catorce años con ellos, los fieles adeptos a la palabra de Dios la consideran un ente ajeno a la gracia divina.

Dos hermanas, envueltas en la nostalgia de una lejana juventud, viven en una digna austeridad hasta que aparece entre ellas Babette, quien llega huyendo del terror de su natal Paris. Al poco tiempo Babette tendra oportunidad de corresponder a la bondad y al calor con que fue acogida. Organiza una opulenta cena con los platillos y vinos de la mejor gastronomia. Es tal la fuerza seductora de las viandas que, poco a poco, en un ceremonial intenso y emotivo, los invitados ceden a la sensualidad que implica gozar de los prodigios de la cocina. La cena termina en medio de una contenida pero muy profunda alegría, despertando el calor humano que todos llevaban soterrado. Se da el milagro de hacer brotar la bondad humana a traves del goce de los sentidos
