Classic Recipes from The Hundred-Foot Journey

I was able to attend a screening of the Hundred-Foot Journey before it released into theaters and loved it. It’s heartwarming and funny, a great family movie. One of the best parts about the movie for me is the focus on food and family. I love to cook and our family meals are the times we cherish–with the four of us sitting down chatting about the ups and downs of our days. I remember doing this as a child with my family, and certain foods always bring back memories of my family. Sitting down to eat steak with mushrooms and baked potatoes or making hot pepperoni sandwiches will always remind me of growing up in New York. The reason I document my family’s favorite recipes on My Crazy Good Life is because I want to make sure they have a place to find my recipes long after I’m gone.

The Hundred-Foot Journey is a movie that reminds me of how strong our ties to food really are, and how food can create lifelong memories for us.

The Hundred-Foot Journey from DreamWorks Pictures:

From DreamWorks Pictures:

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. 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 (Charlotte Le Bon) — 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.

“The Hundred-Foot Journey” abounds with flavors that burst across the tongue. A stimulating triumph over exile, blossoming with passion and heart, it is a portrayal of two worlds colliding and one young man’s drive to find the comfort of home, in every pot, wherever he may be.
