If you know me, you know I love two things – Disney| DreamWorks and Cost Plus World Market. So you can imagine how excited I was to be asked to share an amazing contest the two have put together to celebrate the upcoming release of “The Hundred-Foot Journey.”
Disney| DreamWorks “The Hundred-Foot Journey” Film
First let me tell you a little bit about the film. It’s based on a book by Richard C. Morais (which I highly recommend – I purchased the audio version and loved it). The film stars Academy Award®-winner Helen Mirren, perfectly cast as Madame Mallory, a classic French Chef running her own Michelin-starred restaurant. Her idyllic life in the village of Saint-Antonin-Noble-Vale in the South of France is shattered when a family from India moves in across the street and then opens an Indian restaurant in their home. She is incensed that Indian food is being served and at the strange goings on across the street and starts a feud between the two which has some interesting results.

The story is fantastic and you’ll fall in love with Hassan Kadam, the Indian Chef who battles with Madame Mallory and himself and he learns the art of French food from the ground up. It’s a story of hardship and chasing your dream.
“The Hundred-Foot Journey” is in US theaters on August 8th, 2014.
