A few weeks ago, Ryan and I were sitting on the couch enjoying some TV when a movie preview aired. It was for the Disney film The Hundred Foot Journey — a movie that has everything I love: French food, Indian food, rivalries, and Helen Mirren. (I just LOVE Helen Mirren. Who doesn’t love Helen Mirren? Whoever they are, I don’t want to know them.)
In The Hundred-Foot Journey, Hassan Kadam (played by Manish Dayal) is a culinary ingénue with the gastronomic equivalent of perfect pitch. Displaced from their native India, the Kadam family, led by Papa (Om Puri), settles in the quaint village of Saint-Antonin-Noble-Val in the south of France. Filled with charm, it is both picturesque and elegant – the ideal place to settle down and open an Indian restaurant, Maison Mumbai. That is, until the chilly chef proprietress of Le Saule Pleureur, a Michelin-starred, classical French restaurant run by Madame Mallory (the lovely Helen Mirren) gets wind of it.
The movie comes to theaters on August 8 (tomorrow!!), but World Market is offering you the chance to experience your own Gourmet Getaway to Paris!

Up on the menu for me is this amazing Chicken Roulade Provencale with Whole-Grain Mustard Bernaise from Ryan Scott. Mustard is one of my favorite flavors — this sounds absolutely divine.
Then for dessert, there’s Chai Coconut Ice Cream with Curry-Chocolate and Ginger Snap Ripple from Aarti Sequeira. That so much goodness in one dessert I can hardly handle it.
What sounds the best to you? Have you ever been to Paris? What did you love about it?
