The Hundred-Foot Journey
by Richard C. Morais
Described by one critic as "a stunning tribute to family and food", this novel reminds me of what inspired me to study food and nutrition. The author writes on page 24, "I didn’t know where to begin with this stiff menu - such exotic-sounding dishes like bouillabaisse and coq au vin - and I looked panic-stricken up at my mother. But Mummy smiled kindly and said, 'Never be afraid of trying something new, Hassan. Very important. It is the spice if life.' "
