Food Fridays, The Hundred Foot Journey
The Hundred Food Journey is a short and wonderfully entertaining book by Richard Morais. It reads like the best non-fiction in that every single detail seems rooted in the real world yet the story is told with all the delightful tricks from the fiction writer's toolbox.
I won't say any more than to say if you love travel, if you love stories about rowdy rambunctious families, if you love stories of rags to riches - and especially if you love food, you are going to love this book.
It's short, it's easy to read and it reminds me of one of my favourite recent movies - Ratatouille. It has the same joyous and exuberant feel to it.
