Publisher's Summary

Hassan Haji, a boy from Mumbai, embarks, along with his boisterous family, on a picaresque journey first to London and then across Europe, before they ultimately open a restaurant opposite a famous chef, Madame Mallory, in the remote French village of Lumiere.
A culinary war ensues, pitting Hassan's Mumbai-toughened father against the imperious Michelin-starred cordon bleu, until Madame Mallory realizes that Hassan is a cook with natural talents far superior to her own.

So dissapointing

If you are a foodie or a chef this is your book, but to us normal book readers, there was too much food and not enough story. Maybe the film is better, this is the only book I have ever listened to that I fast forwarded to the end.

Unfulfilled promise

Starts of with great promise with an interesting story and glimpses of where it could go but the second half just becomes a bit dull. I liked the narrator but found his French accents grating at times.
