In “The Hundred-Foot Journey,” Hassan Kadam (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, the Maison Mumbai. That is, until the chilly chef proprietress of Le Saule Pleureur, a Michelin starred, classical French restaurant run by Madame Mallory (Academy Award®-winner Helen Mirren), gets wind of it. Her icy protests against the new Indian restaurant a hundred feet from her own, escalate to all out war between the two establishments – until Hassan’s passion for French haute cuisine and for Mme. Mallory’s enchanting sous chef, Marguerite (Charlotte Le Bon), combine with his mysteriously delicious talent to weave magic between their two cultures and imbue Saint-Antonin with the flavors of life that even Mme. Mallory cannot ignore. At first Mme. Mallory’s culinary rival, she eventually recognizes Hassan’s gift as a chef and takes him under her wing.

“The Hundred-Foot Journey” abounds with flavors that burst across the tongue. A stimulating triumph over exile, blossoming with passion and heart, with marjoram and madras, it is a portrayal of two worlds colliding and one boy’s drive to find the comfort of home, in every pot, wherever he may be.

In DreamWorks Pictures’ “The Hundred-Foot Journey,” the opening of a new Indian restaurant in the south of France, next to a famous Michelin starred eatery, is nearly cause for an all-out war between the two establishments until Le Saule Pleureur’s icy proprietress Madame Mallory recognizes her rival’s undeniable brilliance for preparing masterful meals.

Cinnamon Apple Roll

Cinnamon Apple Roll
We are fortunate to live very close to several U Pick farms and farm stands here in New England. One of our favorite places to visit each week is an Apple Farm Stand, where we can get a half bushel of Apples for the week at a very inexpensive price. Apples are a favorite fruit and snack for my kids. I am always on the lookout for new and unique ways to use them, and have a Pinterest Board dedicated to Apples!
Follow Karen Puleski’s board Apples on Pinterest.

This Cinnamon Apple Roll recipe is so yummy and delicious, it’s one that my kids ask for often, and I typically add extra fruit, such as the blackberries and strawberries shown above, with it, and sometimes top it off with some whipped cream!

Place in freezer and let go for at least 3+ hours or over night. Then when you are ready to serve them. Run under hot water for a few seconds and they will pop right out of the mold. Then you can sprinkle with pinch of sugar crystals for added sweetness and crunch!
