Series / Kaboul Kitchen

Kaboul Kitchen is a Canal+ original Dramedy series about Jacky, a French restaurant-holder who creates a decadent restaurant in Kabul in 2005 during the Bush administration. With his friend and associate, Axel— a specialist in politics— they deal with evil generals and hypocritical religious fanatics and struggle to keep open their restaurant, the Kabul Kitchen, the only place in Kabul where foreigners can find alcohol, bikini-clad women and French cuisine.

Jacky's life gets even more complicated when his estranged daughter suddenly reappears, all grown up and full of idealism; she came to Kabul to work for the foundation Combat pour la dignité Afghane and her idealistic views are confronted by the harsh reality and her father's cynicism.
