Eeekk! I loved this book so freakin’ much!
10 out of 10!
The Hundred-Foot Journey took me on such a rich and cultural journey that there was absolutely no part that I didn’t like. This book will make you feel the need to travel and eat good food.
The story is about the Haji family from India that moves to France. They open an Indian restaurant right in front of a very classic and very popular French one. The owner of the French restaurant, Madame Mallory, isn’t pleased with her new neighbors and so the fight begins. Hassan, the young man who cooks for Maison Mumbai has an undying passion for food. After he discovers the flavors of French cooking, he wishes nothing more than to learn the fine art of French cuisine. He knows that Madame Malory would be the best teacher, but only if she gets past their cultural differences.
The beautiful descriptions in this book kept me captivated and mesmerized from the first page all the way to the last.
Definitely a must read for anyone who has ever fallen in love with a culture and/or it’s food!
10 out of 10!!!
P.S. I saw the movie and no word of a lie, I thought it was better than the book! Which is saying something! GO WATCH IT PLEASE! Once it comes out on Blu-Ray you need to:
1. Grab a bunch of friends who love food and movies.
2. Cook a bunch of different French and Indian food! (e.i. appetizers, meals, desserts… etc) While listening to a playlist of French and Indian music. (maybe I’ll make one eventually)
3. Watch The Hundred-Foot Journey movie while eating the food and drinking really good wine!
4. PERFECT NIGHT RIGHT THERE!
