Food and literature, can you go wrong?
What a great book. I was NOT expecting to enjoy this book as much as I did. What a great read. It will be interesting to see what they do with this one as a movie.. this makes a few that we have read pale in comparison.
This is a great story about a passion for cooking, for food, and how a young Indian boy comes a great Parisian chef. Totally unexpected, well written, and a pleasure to read.
Food, and our stories, are such an important part of our lives. How we cook, the meals we share, is so important. Equally important is how we craft our own story, how we internalize it, and then retell it to our kin. Using revisionist history, it has been a month since I read this book (and a lot of experiences it has felt like) and what I remember most is the feeling about this book - well written, very interesting, and I never lost my interest.
