The Hundred-Foot Journey – Richard C. Morais – 2010 Scribner New York
Okay, so if you’ve seen the absolutely delightful movie, know that the book and the film are not the same. Not that the book isn’t wonderful in its own right – because it is. Just understand that the story of Hassan Haji, the massively talented chef and restauranteur from Mumbai who takes French cuisine to a whole new level, takes two distinctly different pathways depending on which form you indulge in. My advice? Do both – and don’t worry about the calories.
