The first gathering is Jan. 25. Momo’s Food Emporium on Route 6A in East Sandwich will cook recipes from Richard Morais’ debut novel, “The Hundred-Foot Journey” (Scribner Book Company, $15). The book, rich in detail and well-researched anecdotes, is about a boy from India with lowly beginnings who ends up taking on some of France’s greatest chefs.
“We’re going to mimic the opening night meal described in the book,” says Neila Neary, owner of Momo’s.
The evening will feature passed hors d’oeuvres. Neary says attendees will have a chance to socialize, collect recipes and learn a bit about how spices are used in Indian cooking. Momo’s four chefs will also prepare Indian dishes to sell in the specialty shop’s takeout case.
