Description
Now a major motion picture starring Helen Mirren and Om Puri, produced by Juliet Blake, Oprah Winfrey, and Steven Spielberg: the culinary fairytale—hailed as “Slumdog Millionaire meets Ratatouille” by The New York Times Book Review—about a young Indian boy who becomes a three-star chef in Paris.

Born above his grandfather’s modest restaurant in Mumbai, Hassan Haji first experienced life through intoxicating whiffs of spicy fish curry, trips to the local markets, and gourmet outings with his mother. But when tragedy strikes, the Hajis leave India and embark on a journey around the world, eventually opening an Indian restaurant in Lumière, a small town in the French Alps. The family takes the village by storm, provoking the ire of their neighbor—Madame Mallory, the proprietress of an esteemed French relais. Only after waging culinary war with the immigrant family does Madame Mallory finally agree to mentor young Hassan, leading him to Paris and a host of new adventures. A testament to the inevitability of destiny, this is a fable for the ages: charming, endearing, and compulsively readable.

"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." And so begins the rise of Hassan Haji, the unlikely gourmand who recounts his life's journey in this novel. Lively and brimming with the colors, flavors, and scents of the kitchen, it is a succulent treat about family, nationality, and the mysteries of good taste.
