Film and Fork is a cookbook written by a group of film-buff foodies. You know how when you're watching a movie on an empty stomach and your mind begins to wander? If you're like us, before you know it, you're thinking about food. We still can't watch that scene in Inglourious Basterds where Hans Landa orders the strudel ("Wait for the cream") without wanting one for ourselves. Instead of pushing those thoughts aside, we rolled with them. Often, it's easy to create a recipe for what the characters are eating on-screen, such as when Clemenza is teaching Michael how to make sauce in The Godfather. Sometimes it's tricky. Predator, for instance, a movie about a bunch of soldiers being hunted by a killer alien, doesn't readily supply too many culinary inspirations. It wasn't until the 50th time that we heard the iconic line, "Get to the choppa!" as "Get to the 'lamb-choppa'!" Then, voilà! A delicious lamb chop dinner with a blood orange salad was created. It's truly an amazing feeling when you create a recipe that captures the essence of your inspiration.
Part cookbook, part entertainment, the book features cocktails, main dishes, and desserts inspired by iconic scenes, characters, and memorable moments from 46 of our favorite films. The recipes are easy-to-follow, elegantly plated, and most importantly, taste-tested (we really enjoyed that part). We hope that our book will help you become a star in your own kitchen!
