Friends of the College of the Desert Library (FOTL) invites you to attend a fundraiser book & movie event, The Hundred Foot Journey, based on the novel by Richard C. Morais. The show is set for Tuesday, August 12, 2014, between 10 a.m. and noon at the Palme D'Or Theater at the Westfield Palm Desert Mall.
The movie staring Helen Mirren is about a middle-aged chef, Hassan Haji, recounts his life’s journey, from his family’s modest restaurant in Mumbai, to an elegant restaurant in Paris where he has conquered the insular world of French haute cuisine. A tragedy in Mumbai pushes Hassan’s boisterous family into a picaresque journey across Europe where they ultimately settle opposite famous chef, Madam Mallory (played by Mirren), in a remote French village. Full of eccentric characters, vivid settings and delicious meals, Hassan’s charming tale lays bare the elite world of French haute cuisine.
A no host lunch is being planned, details to follow. The event includes movie, book and a goodie bag. FOTL members cost is $20, all non-members is $25, payment will be at the door.
Reservations are required, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org. Proceeds from the event support the COD Library.
