The Hundred Foot Journey Feast
Alamo Drafthouse chef mines flavors of foodie film

If the trailers for the summer's newest foodie film have piqued your culinary curiosity, the Alamo Drafthouse Lakeline is offering a four-course feast on Wednesday, Aug. 20 that food-loving film fans won't want to miss.
In his new film, The Hundred Foot Journey, director Lasse Hallstrom tells the story of the Kadam family, immigrants from India who settle in a quaint village in the South of France to open an Indian restaurant, Maison Mumbai. The idea of a loud, gauche, and colorful Indian eatery within 100 feet of her own elegant, Michelin-starred, classical French establishment is anathema to proprietress Mme. Mallory (Helen Mirren). A battle of wills and culinary skulduggery ensues.
In order to complement the movie's culinary culture clash, Alamo Drafthouse chef Trish Eichelberger has created dishes inspired by both French and Indian cuisines, complete with French wine pairings. Tickets are $50 and can be purchased here.
