In The Hundred Foot Journey, a young chef gets the opportunity to help a restaurant getitssecond Michelin star. The end left me a) wanting to move toFrance, b) wanting to cook. Of course,Iwas feeling sick soIdid not do either of those things, but I wanted to!Ihad my emotions torn between food andFranceasIdo every timeIsee a movie about food. Food-themed movies are typically about French food because French food is THE classic, quintessential cuisine. It is dependent on the carefultechniquesdeveloped to make food look AND taste amazing.
Although the father in The Hundred-Foot Journey argued that there is a classic aspect to all cuisines, Frenchcuisine is definitely the one that chefs developed into a higher art form first.

Nevertheless, the technique of French cooking: knife skills, the feeling of when different meats are cooked properly, the balance, and sometimes, delicacy of the flavors is what makes the difference.
