I was back in Asia at the Empire Resort in Brunei, relaxing in a luxurious hotel room overlooking the South China Sea when I first caught snippets of The Mistress of Spices on TV. I’m not going to lie, it’s a totally sappy movie, made and destined for TV. But it made me realize how I underutilize spices. I seldom use anything more exotic than salt and pepper.

The movie also made me realize just how breathtakingly beautiful Indian women are. I’ve written about another Indian beauty, Padma, here. (She is coincidentally in this movie too.) But Aishwarya is one of the most beautiful women I’ve seen. Add to the fact that there was some culinary element involved and it made the movie otherwise watchable and enjoyable.
