Rich Sims and I started talking about this show two years ago. We thought combining two of our passions, music and food, would lead to a fun, fulfilling hour. I put together a list of some of my favorite food movies, Rich located the sound tracks, and chose selections that, along with our banter, will bring back memories or prod you to watch the film for the first time.
I won't give away all the films we're going to feature, but the menu will include music from Ratatouille, Moonstruck, and Chef. Join Rich and I, and if you have any input, give us a call in the studio during the show on Wednesday from 7:00-8:00 pm CDT at 641-109-1082.

Last night we watched Dinner Rush again and a few days before that Tortilla Soup. They are both great movies and extra fun for foodies. Besides the food there are some interesting issues tackled and that started us talking about other excellent food movies. Some that come to mind are Big Night, Tampopo, Eat, Drink, Man, Woman (the original Tortilla Soup), and Babette's Feast. There are plenty of others. If you have a favorite, drop me a note with your picks and why. We'll spend some time snacking and talking about these luscious films on Wednesday during part of the show.
