In a remote 19th century Danish village, two sisters lead a rigid life centered around their father, the local church minister. Both had opportunities to leave the village; one could have married an army officer and the other, a French opera singer. Their father objected in each case, and they spent their lives caring for him. Many years later - with father deceased - they take in a French refugee, Babette, who works as their servant.

After winning the lottery, Babette repays the sisters for their kindness by cooking a French meal for them and their friends on the 100th anniversary of their father's birth. It proves to be an eye-opening experience for everyone.
