Fellow foodies, fellow travellers, fellow foodietravellers, for a short culinary travel fix, get yourself along to see this lovely movie, The 100 ft Journey. You’ll be transported without having to travel too far to get a taste of India and Europe. The film is based on the novel of the same name, written by Richard C. Morais. I don’t like to give too much away about a movie so I won’t spoil it, but it tells the story of an Indian family who are struck by tragedy and are are led to a quaint village in the South of France. They have a plan to open an Indian restaurant despite it being 100 feet opposite a Michelin starred French restaurant. It then follows the journey of a talented chef.
You will be charmed by the small village in Southern France and the amazing food and colour that is brought to the screen. The scenery is breath taking. It stars Helen Mirren, however I’m not familiar with the other actors. It will delight you in the fact that a love for food is universal, regardless of culture, and it always brings people together. It’s just such a ‘feel good’ movie. Enjoy.
