A food theme for either a book or a movie will always be interesting. Just like The Hundred-Foot Journey the movie. A story about a feud between two restaurants in a French town, one id operated by a recently relocated Indian family and the other is a French restaurant run by Madam Mallory. 

Kadam Family runs a restaurant in Mumbai, India. One night a mob attacks and firebombs the restaurant over an election dispute. Their mother is killed. The Father and his children seek for asylum in Europe. First they settle in London but it doesn't run well. They decide to depart to other European countries and finally arrive  in one of the beautiful villages in France.

Father buys an old restaurant then renovating, refurnishing and setting it into an Indian restaurant. This restaurant is located across a French restaurant run by Madame Mallory. They finally involve in a serious competition in getting the customers and introducing their food business. The dispute is getting more and more serious until it goes too far.

Delivered in a witty yet awesome way. You will love the movie. Don't forget to have some snacks while watching the movie because the movie offers several tempting recipes which might cause you hungry, lol. I haven't read the book yet. Since the movie is excellent, I am sure the book will be double awesome.
