Introduction

This tale of restaurant rivalry and a desperate quest for Michelin starts is beautifully told. From India to France, Richard Morais takes his caravanseria of eccentric characters and mouthwatering recipes on an unlikely journey. I have never experiences that most subtle of senses - smell - captured so well in print. The aroma of fine cooking just floats off the pages. Don't read this book if you're hungry. You might eat id." - Simon Beaufox, Oscar-Winning screenwriter of Slumlord Millionaire (from back cover)
