Quatorze ans plus tard, la française est devenue leur fidèle servante. Un jour, elle gagne une somme importante à la loterie.

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 París. Al poco tiempo Babette tendrá 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 gastronomía. 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 través del goce de los sentidos
