Hollywood goes gastronomic: Sandler or Bourdain?

2. the food-related film i saw so far is Chocolat(would that count).  A lot of people are saying that babette's feast is a good food-related movie. Has anyone seen that movie?

Yes, it would 'count', if anyone was actually 'counting' ... :laugh:

and a hearty 'yes' to "has anyone seen that movie?" :wink:

Hard to imagine how many people who frequent eGullet would have missed it either in the theatre or on video ... the ultimate foodie flick, I'll wager ... :cool:

:laugh: Not a form of Italian parsley but rather:

Light good-natured talk; banter.

Light or frivolous manner of discussing a subject.

Shaun of the Dead.


"I've caught you Richardson, stuffing spit-backs in your vile maw. 'Let tomorrow's omelets go empty,' is that your fucking attitude?" -E. B. Farnum

Yes.

Like Water For Chocolate


I'm a canning clean freak because there's no sorry large enough to cover the, "Oops! I gave you botulism" regrets.

1. Yes

2. Babette's Feast - another vote here. I saw it for the first time in college, own the DVD, love it still. I liked Chocolat enough to buy it, too, but I'm not that much of a chocolate fan.

A bit off-topic, I also tend to enjoy books that describe the food that the characters are eating more than books that don't. I hate it when a novel says something about the characters eating a feast and then never says a word about what the feast consisted of! I find myself "getting into" a novel more when it goes into detail, when I can picture the characters eating their meal.

Re Babette's Feast, I just didn't find any of the dishes to be of real interest. If you'd eat 'em, fine.

edit:

On the other hand, the meat in Shaun of the Dead was at least rare.

Yes, except as was already noted, when kitchen staff are gratuitously gunned down and no one notices. :angry:
