Even though I didn't pay much attention to the Oscars last night (they were kinda boring...even moreso because I saw none of the films), I thought it appropriate that today's theme be "food in film." It took a class in college called food in film. I could have sworn I posted about some of my favorite food movies here before, but I can't find it. So, in the future I'll have to list some of my faves. But tonight, I'll stick with these silver screen links...
ljc's oscar party had some great ideas! And who can resist oscar the pug in a bowtie?
more great oscar party ideas (the recipes won't be any good next year, but the other party ideas are cute!
Here's a really good article about food movies, especially "Big Night" (LOVE that movie!!!)
Trivia quiz about movies with food names. I got a 7 out of 10. I am amazed that one of the options on a question was "The Peanut Butter Solution." One of the oddest canadian after school special-like movies you'll ever see. I have it on video. I won't get into it because it's just too much.
Ever watch TBS's "Dinner & a Movie?" It's a fun idea, and I love some of the recipe names they come up with: New Age Baloney for LA Story, May the Borscht Be With You for Spaceballs and Peter Pancakes with Lost Boysenberry Syrup for Hook. Cute!
This book looks great. Unfortunately the library doesn't have it. I'll have to look for it next time I visit a bookstore. More about it.
Another reason I wish I lived in New York: A Food in Film series!
Here's another food/movie book. A book of recipes from movies! Neat!
A good list of food films with little articles about each one, from the London Food Film Fiesta. I wanna go!
Again, I'll reserve my favorite food films for another post. What are some of yours?
