An interesting storyline with a romantic twist. Loved watching the fine meals and the mix of upper-class with mainstream restaurant mix. Delightful!

"Food is memories".-Hassan
"Where the family is that is home".-Papa
Hassan: Marguerite, I'm glad that our brakes failed here. Maybe brakes break for a reason.
Papa: It's not Mansur's money. Not until I die. Until then it is mine and Mama's money. And she loves this village. She said brakes break for a reason.
Hassan: How did you learn about all this stuff?
Marguerite: Uh, I was 12, and I started with the five basics, which is bechamel, veloute,
hollandaise, tomato, espagnole. You have to master
those five basic sauces first.
Hassan: And you can find all five in the books?
Marguerite: Of course, but they're no use in books. You must find them in your heart, and then bring them to your pots. That's the secret.
Papa: Is the President of France able to order murgh masala, with cashew nuts and cardamom? And ka saag aloo? Dal? Our secret family spices? ... Is the President able to order tandoori goat, cooked the way Hassan cooks? Sprinkled with roast spices?
Mallory: What is this flavor that is fighting against the chicken?
Hassan: I added some spices
for flavor to the sauce, and coriander for garnish and freshness.
Mallory: But why change a recipe that is 200 years old?
Hassan: Because, madam, maybe 200 years is long enough.
Akhiya (Hassan's mom): But to cook, you must kill. You make ghosts. You cook to make ghosts. Spirits that live on in every ingredient.
Mallory: Now, last night, we served this. Miserable, overcooked asparagus. In this restaurant, the cuisine is not an old, tired marriage, it is a passionate affair of the heart.
