27th Cork French Film Festival event Candlelit supper & screening of The Hundred Foot Journey
10 Mar 2016
Set in the bucolic south of France, the film centres on Hassan (Manish Dayal), a culinary whiz with the gastronomic equivalent of perfect pitch. Displaced from their native India, Hassan's father opens a curry house across the street from a celebrated, Michelin-starred French restaurant owned by the hoity Madame Mallory (Helen Mirren).
Food and culture wars ensue as Hassan's proud Papa and the imperious Madame Mallory bicker and squabble, while Hassan starts to break eggs with sous chef Marguerite (Charlotte Le Bon) who teaches him the saucy secrets of "classic" French cuisine.
Directed by Lasse Halstrom.
Produced by Steven Spielberg and Oprah Winfrey.
Dinner (6:30pm in the Grainstore) & Screening: €55 Screening only (8pm): €10
