The Hundred-Foot Journey follows the life and culinary adventures of Hassan Haji. Cooking was definitely in his blood. His grandfather and father were both restaurant owners in Mumbai, India. After the family relocated to a small village in France, Hassan took a turn from traditional Indian cuisine and dove into the critical and complicated world of French cuisine.
Morais writes an interesting and unlikely rags to riches story. It is a joy to follow Hassan through each leg of his journey, but parts of the story seem a little rushed.
