To celebrate the upcoming release of Dreamworks The Hundred-Foot Journey, in cinemas from August 14, we have recipes to share and 3 x double passes to give away.
“The Hundred-Foot Journey,” is an absolutely charming tale of Hassan Kadam, a culinary ingénue with the gastronomic equivalent of perfect pitch. Displaced from their native India, the Kadam family, led by Papa, settles in the quaint village of Saint-Antonin-Noble-Val in the south of France. Filled with charm, it is both picturesque and elegant – the ideal place to settle down and open an Indian restaurant, Maison Mumbai. That is, until the chilly chef proprietress of Le Saule Pleureur, a Michelin-starred, classical French restaurant run by Madame Mallory gets wind of it. Her icy protests against the new Indian restaurant a hundred feet from her own escalate into a heated battle between the two establishments until Hassan’s passion for French haute cuisine — and for Madame Mallory’s enchanting sous chef, Marguerite — combine with his mysteriously-delicious talent to weave magic between their two cultures and imbue Saint-Antonin with the flavors of life that even Madame Mallory cannot ignore. At first Madame Mallory’s culinary rival, she eventually recognizes Hassan’s gift as a chef and takes him under her wing.
While the book (Richard C Morais) has circulated book club circles over the past year or so, the movie is also about to be released here (August 14). With Helen Mirren as the icy Madame Mallory, combined with the talents of Om Puri, Manish Dayal and Charlotte Le Bon the film is set to be a total feast of the senses.
