E-mail of the week comes from Jt Lewis: "So we're screening The Godfather preceded by Clemenza's spaghetti and of course cannoli for desert. Last month's White-Russian stoked Big Lebowski was a big hit. Other ubiquitous film/food pairings?"
Glad you asked, Jt:
Obviously ratatouille with Ratatouille, although the rodent/chef's presentation is much more elegant than anything I have ever made or been served. French chocolate with Chocolat. Tortilla Soup with Tortilla Soup (which has all sorts of mouthwatering food, inclusing the best school lunch ever.)
Blinis with caviar are perfect for Babette's Feast, the exquisite Danish movie based on an Isak Dinesen story prompted by her American editor: "Americans love food," the editor said.
