Crème Brûlée – #FoodieFriday from The Hundred-Foot Journey

While I absolutely hate bananas I do love Crème Brûlée. If you do like both then this is the recipe that you have to try for this Foodie Friday recipe from the upcoming movie The Hundred-Foot Journey. You can get a larger recipe by clicking on the recipe image below.

I learned that I’ll be taking a cooking lesson at Le Cordon Bleu while I in California to see the movie and interview the star Manish Dayal. I just hope that I’m not using bananas in the recipe since I’ll be eating what I cook. I’m sure whatever we make will be delicious and I’ll have plenty of photos.

In “The Hundred-Foot Journey,” Hassan Kadam (Manish Dayal) is a culinary ingénue with the gastronomic equivalent of perfect pitch. Displaced from their native India, the Kadam family, led by Papa (Om Puri), settles in the quaint village of Saint-Antonin-Noble-Val in the south of France. Filled with charm, it is both picturesque and elegant – the ideal place to settle down and open an Indian restaurant, the Maison Mumbai. That is, until the chilly chef proprietress of Le Saule Pleureur, a Michelin starred, classical French restaurant run by Madame Mallory (Academy Award®-winner Helen Mirren), gets wind of it. Her icy protests against the new Indian restaurant a hundred feet from her own, escalate to all out war between the two establishments – until Hassan’s passion for French haute cuisine and for Mme. Mallory’s enchanting sous chef, Marguerite (Charlotte Le Bon), combine with his mysteriously delicious talent to weave magic between their two cultures and imbue Saint-Antonin with the flavors of life that even Mme. Mallory cannot ignore. At first Mme. Mallory’s culinary rival, she eventually recognizes Hassan’s gift as a chef and takes him under her wing.

“The Hundred-Foot Journey” abounds with flavors that burst across the tongue. A stimulating triumph over exile, blossoming with passion and heart, with marjoram and madras, it is a portrayal of two worlds colliding and one boy’s drive to find the comfort of home, in every pot, wherever he may be.





THE HUNDRED-FOOT JOURNEY arrives in theaters everywhere on August 8th!
