The Hundred-Foot Journey

Staff Review: The Hundred-Foot Journey

"The Hundred-Foot Journey" by Richard C. Morais

Cover: 'The Hundred-Foot Journey'

★★★★

Take a journey through food with the Haji family that spans the globe from Mumbai, London, and Paris. Any foodie or person who loves to travel will enjoy following the main character, Hassan, through his life of travel and food. Hassan is brought up in Mumbai learning to cook from his family. Although turmoil touches his family, which prompts them to move to England then France, Hassan follows his passion and becomes a well known chef. This book is a joy to read and really takes you on a colorful journey across continents and cultures. The author does such a wonderful job describing the food cooked in this book that you might not want to read this book on an empty stomach! I definitely recommend this book to anyone looking to get away with a great read.

Audience: adults | Genre: fiction, food
