Parisian Mumbai Salad Inspired by The Hundred Foot Journey

In DreamWorks Pictures The Hundred-Foot Journey, just one bite of a meal could transport the characters home to found memories and love.  Many scents and flavors take me home, especially to my Grandma’s kitchen where we spent many weekends and holidays as a family.  One of my favorite meals that she made for us was her Hulupki’s (stuffed cabbage).  She loved to share with us food from her Slovak heritage.  Stuffed cabbage with mashed potatoes will always remind me of my Gram and the love that she put into them. 

Le Cordon Bleu Los Angeles

In honor of the beautiful film, we were treated to a tour of Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts in Los Angeles. After the tour, they taught us how to make a Parisian Mumbai Salad combining the French and Indian flavors featured in the film.

Before we made our dinner, Le Cordon Bleu treated us to an amazing appetizer of Quiche Lorraine and Beef Bourguignon with a salad.  Both were amazing, but the crust on the quiche blew me away.  I will be sharing both recipes soon, so stay tuned!

While we were eating our amazing appetizer, Chef taught us how to make the salad.

Soon we got busy in the kitchen.  With the help of Le Cordon Bleu students, Karen (Rockinmama) and I made our dish.

The salad was amazing, so fresh and full of flavors.  I will definitely be making this at home for my family.  Here is the recipe so you can give it a try for yourself and to get a taste of the flavors in The Hundred-Foot Journey.
