Best of food porn: “The Hundred Foot Journey;” Robin Williams’ Sonoma side; Sam Sebastiani returns a winner; Hot Box Grill reopens; David Viviani: Mr. Cheese O’s

Best food porn on film:

“The Hundred Foot Journey” is a must-see film for fans of Helen Mirren, food, Om Puri, Charlotte Le Bon, Manish Dayal, Indian music, France, Indian food, romance, French food, triumph over tragedy – just about anything,

It’s a film about food and love, love of food, food love, the romance of food, food as romance, food’s attractions – both substantive and visual, shared love of food, food as bond, and food lust, all resulting in blending of food and food families. Got the picture?

You will learn something about making both Indian and French dishes, blending spices and cuisines, as well as Helen Mirren’s ability to blend cultures, languages and accents into one fiercely dominating restaurant owner who is softened by food and romance.

Laugh and cry and appreciate the expert and accurate job that set designer David Gropman, brother of Cafe LaHaye owner Saul Gropman, created to design and construct such authentic period decor throughout the movie. This time, Gropman should win the Academy Award.
