I'm not much of a foodie, no one has ever confused me for a chef, but I'm addicted to all the food shows on television. From what Sally says in her post about the book, the movie should be a feast for the eyes.
"The novel delves into the the politics & cutthroat competitive nature of the Michelin star system. It is peppered with culinary tidbits from the tastes & smells of simple country fare to the richest of French haut cuisine. I would have to say that I found the colorful & spicy references to the exotic Indian culinary offerings more enticing than the descriptions of the over the top French indulgences. It will be interesting to see just how all of this talk of food will be recreated onto film."

If the Beef Bourguinon looks good to you, and you actually enjoy the process of 'cooking' vs my preference (watching other people cook) Dreamworks has provided the recipe presented by Chef Floyd Cardoz. Don't miss the video below where Chef Cardoz and author Richard C. Morais take us through it, Cardoz comparing his experience to Hassan's.
