The Hundred-Foot Journey is anything but shy on the subject of flavor. The film's star, Manish Dayal, talks about his upbringing in two cultures and helps answer what makes a "food film" worth watching.

Show Notes and Links
- The Hundred-Foot Journey (IMDb) is designed for a broad audience, but that doesn't mean it isn't a meal worth having had. Avoid trailers, they make it look awful (like many trailers do to movies).
- Chef (IMDb) is one of my favorite movies of last year, and I've seen it four times. Of course, I grew up cooking Cuban food with my dad, so consider my bias.
- The Cuban Sandwich Café in Austin doesn't have a fancy name, but it's run by real Cubans and the food is amazing.
