NOTE: Aasif Mandvi will participate by Skype, not in person (The Daily Show sent him out west at the last minute).
MEET THE FILMMAKERS: Indian film star and renown cookbook author MADHUR JAFFREY, with Rockland County indie producer DECLAN BALDWIN.
A delightful "foodie" comedy set in the Jackson Heights Indian community, starring Aasif Mandvi (from "The Daily Show," and the film's screenwriter) and Bollywood icons Madhur Jaffrey (also a bestselling Indian cookbook author) and Naseeruddin Shah ("Monsoon Wedding"). An upscale Manhattan chef takes over his family's rundown restaurant in Queens after his father's heart attack. A chance encounter with a taxi driver and worldly master chef helps him not only salvage the family business but also rediscover his passion for life through the art of Indian cooking.
