Drama. A magistrate is in the midst of trying to ascertain why Nicolas Riviere has been imprisoned. Having interviewed various witnesses, the magistrate discovers that Nicolas was sharing an apartment with his girlfriend and three other friends, and working as a waiter. An international businessman, Delamont, asked Nicolas to taste some food for him, and pleased with his response, Delamont made Nicolas his chief taster. Although Nicolas quickly got used to his new way of life, there were snags: Delamont resorted to extreme and somewhat bizarre methods to make sure he and Nicolas shared exactly the same tastes.
