Avatar for EmilyEm EmilyEm said:
Hassan Haji is born with perfect taste as Madame Mallory discovers to her chagrin: "That skinny Indian teenager has that mysterious something that comes along once a generation. He is one of those rare chefs who is simply born. He is an artist." So begins an endearing story of family and food. Hassan tells his and his restaurant family’s journey from Mumbai to London to the foothills of the French Alps where he learns to cook at his grandmother Ammi’s side and then from two-star Michelin restaurateur Gertrude Mallory before opening his own Paris restaurant. It reads like a memoir; the characters seem like people you’ve read about in the food business. Soon to be in theaters as a summer movie.
