Cooking With Stella
Rating:
** 1/2

Lisa Ray and Don McKellar are Maya and Michael, a diplomat to the Canadian high commission in New Delhi and her chef husband.

They arrive at the official residence to find a tenured cook, an incomprehensible class system and a disapproving cook named Stella (Seema Biswas).

She’s annoyed that Michael stays home; she has a 30-year-old black market grocery business to run using commission food.

An honest nanny (Shriya Saran) arrives on the scene — and chaos ensues.

Dilip Mehta’s spirited, light-hearted outlook seems strangely out of synch with Stella’s relentless corruption, but he certainly shoots a beautiful film.

Audiences will crave Indian food afterwards.
