I am so excited about the opening of ‘The Hundred Foot Journey’ in US theaters on August 8th. It is based on the best-selling novel by Richard C. Morais and starring Academy Award®-winner Helen Mirren. I have watched the trailer over and over and am so inspired by the plot, the setting, the music and the characters. I already have a favorite line (really two) from just that little part. Here it is…
“Why change a recipe that is 200 years old?” followed by… “Maybe 200 years is enough.”
A brief overview of the movie is as follows… In “The Hundred-Foot Journey,” Hassan Kadam (Manish Dayal) is a culinary ingénue with the gastronomic equivalent of perfect pitch. Displaced from their native India, the Kadam family, led by Papa (Om Puri), 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 (Academy Award®-winner Helen Mirren) gets wind of it.
I have researched the amazing chefs and their recipes that are available through World Market. Ryan Scott (Restauranteur and Host of Food Rush) has developed exclusive French recipes. I LOVE French food! My favorite of these is the Berry-Ricotta Layer Cake for sure! I could almost eat the photograph!
You can also find his recipes for Chicken Roulade Provencale with Whole-Grain Mustard Bearnaise and Orange-Chocolate Almond-Nougat Truffle there.
If you love Indian food, Aarti Sequeira (Author & Host of Aarti Party) is sharing some recipes too. You can find out how to create these fabulous gourmet creations on the website too: Channa Masala Hummus, Masala Moules Frites and Chai Coconut Ice Cream with Curry-Chocolate & Ginger Snap Ripple!
