REMINDER:  GREAT TASTE LIVE AT GREEN BUILDING SUPPLY

TUESDAY, JANUARY 3 AT 7:00 PM
with CHEF ERIC FROM EVERYBODY'S CAFE

The Big NightLast week's visit with Tenaya Darlington author along with her brother, AndrĂ© of Movie Night Menus, inspired me to replay the following show about movies and food.  If you want to curl up on the couch with a great food flick read on.

It was so much fun discussing food in films with Caroline M. Grant.  Caroline and her collaborator, Lisa Catherine Harper, are the editors of The Cassoulet Saved Our Marriage, a fascinating book of diverse essays focussed on "true tales of food, family, and how we learn to eat."

Caroline is an avid movie lover so we spent the hour talking about some of our favorite films where food plays a role like Aing Lee's Eat Drink Man Woman and its Westernized counterpart, Tortilla Soup.  Dinner Rush, The Big Night, Moonstruck, and others were part of the banter before time ran out.  We had many other films on our list, but I'm curious how the ones we ended up talking about fit in with your favorites.  Let me know.  Send your comments to greattaste@kruufm.com.

Caroline's kids also nominated their favorite food film.
