Enjoy reading books that have a great story AND good food? Then this month’s Books & Bites menu choice is just for you! This month we will be reading the Hundred-Foot Journey by Richard C. Morais.The novel’s charm lies in its improbability: it’s “Slumdog Millionaire” meets “Ratatouille.” – – New York Times
Full of eccentric characters, hilarious cultural mishaps, vivid settings and delicious meals described in rich, sensuous detail, Hassan’s charming account lays bare the inner workings of the elite world of French haute cuisine, and pro- vides a life-affirming and poignant coming-of-age tale. – – AlmaBooks.com
The Hundred-Foot Journey is about how the hundred-foot distance between a new Indian kitchen and a traditional French one can represent the gulf be- tween different cultures and desires. A testament to the inevitability of destiny, this is a fable for the ages—charming, endearing, and compulsively readable. – – Simon and Schuster
“Precise descriptive writing offers much to savor in this bouillabaisse of a first novel.” – – Kirkus Reviews
