Discuss the relationships between the characters and the food described in the book. Why or why not? How much or how little can be told about each character from the name of their restaurant?
Do you think that, until this point, he had forgotten the importance of home and family, of roots and past experiences, in his journey to become the best chef he could be? Later, Hassan walks by a small, hole-in-the-wall Indian restaurant in Paris and stands at the window for a while.
Do you feel this passage is symbolic as well as literal? Did Hassan have to leave behind a part of who he was to keep moving forward? Do you think this was a choice he consciously made? Do you agree with his choice? What did Hassan gain and what did he lose in his journey? In the elite world of haute cuisine, what are the costs of rising to the top?
Do you think the sacrifices were worth the successes? There is a terrific build up with engaging characters and then THUD: It turns into a self-gratifying, culinary ramble with obnoxious amounts of name dropping.
Very disappointing given the promise of the early chapters. If you are a foodie, this book is one to read. Although there are no recipes included by the author, the descriptions of international fare will make you want to check out a few Parisian, and Indian cookbooks. I would recommend this book to just about anyone, although there are a few unnecessary descriptions in my opinion. Cooking was definitely in his blood. His grandfather and father were both restaurant owners in Mumbai, India.
After the family relocated to a small village in France, Hassan took a turn from traditional Indian cuisine and dove into the critical and complicated world of French cuisine. Morais writes an interesting and unlikely rags to riches story.
It is a joy to follow Hassan through each leg of his journey, but parts of the story seem a little rushed. The authors attention to detail is what makes this small volume such a fascinating read, even if the tale is a little far-fetched.
If you enjoy cultural immersion, vivid description, and captivating characters Who cares if it's believable?
At least it's not contrived. RebekahOglesby thinks this title is suitable for between the ages of 15 and Skip to main navigation Skip to main navigation Skip to search Skip to search Skip to content. Help Help, opens a new window. Admin Admin Admin, collapsed.
