Connecting the painter's love of art and his profound appreciation for food, "Monet's Palate" embarks on a culinary tour of Normandy, where Monet lived and worked in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The documentary, introduced by Academy Award-winning actress Meryl Streep, offers a revealing portrait of the father of Impressionist painting. The production, shot entirely on location in Paris, London and Giverny, includes exclusive footage taken inside the home where the artist and notorious gourmand lived for 43 years.
