Following their flight from India and their culinary trek across Europe, the Haji family settle in the small French town of Lumiere. Opening a small restaurant featuring exotic Indian cuisine causes a sensation…and open animosity from the town’s established doyenne of food, Mme. Mallory. Following the life of Hassan Haji, this charming novel traces how he is able to gain the trust and grudging admiration of his former adversary, learning from her and eventually finding a spot in the leading kitchens of Paris.
