About The Hundred Foot Journey
The film is about the Kadam family’s experience opening a restaurant, the Maison Mumbai, in the South of France. The restaurant is led by the very talented culinary ingénue Hassan Kadam.
However, things go a little less smoothly when their unfriendly new neighbor and chef hears about the restaurant. Madame Mallory of the Michelin starred, classical French restaurant, Le Saule Pluereur, is not too happy about the new eatery.
