Meanwhile the Kadams, a family of Indian restaurateurs, have fled the unrest in Mumbai that destroyed their business and was responsible for the death of the matriarch, a famously talented cook.
This is also a feel good foodie film that requires a tolerance for watching actors chewing mouthfuls then going into ecstasies, usually without describing much more detail about flavours or how it tastes besides "mmmm, it's delicious." (When in doubt, the secret ingredient is always cardamom.) That's not to say the movie is without charm. The two main charmers are Mirren and Puri, whose reluctant romance is more credible and has far more spicy nuance than the younger pair.

There's no punishment for the town's criminally violent xenophobes, nor correction of the lazy, crowd pleasing but racist Slumdog Millionaire backstory the Paris food media gives Hassan, who as eventual star chef gets ever farther away from the soul and meaning of cooking.
Son Hassan (Manish Dayal) has inherited his mother's gifts and is a culinary ingenue with the gastronomic equivalent of perfect pitch, infusing his tandoori goat with irresistible flavours.
