Guest Blogger: Covers Foodie Film 100-Foot Journey

The Food in Film Flick, The Hundred- Foot Journey, based on the bestselling novel of the same name, by Richard C. Morais, opens in bustling market place in India. We see young Hassan Kadam (Manish Dayal), dragged by his mother, through a maze of vendors and shoppers, in pursuit of a man carrying a basket of sea. At the end of this labyrinthine, women are shoving their hands high into the air, frantically waving money, vying for the proprietor’s attention. In this frenzy, young Hassan, a soulful-eyed boy with lush, thick eye lashes, places his face into the sea urchin basket, and breathes in the exotic briny scent. He sticks his fingers into the aquatic ooze, takes it to his mouth and is transfixed by the taste.
