Welcome to the boot - the love song within a foreign film that is my life. easy and healthy recipes for the budding home cook, stories about me and my Italian (soon-to-be-husband) Manu, and snippets of life in Italy.
You know that scene in Moonstruck where it cuts to Olympia Dukakis frying an egg inside a slice of bread with some red peppers? Then she flops the egg down on the plate with the peppers on top. She pours coffee from a blue, old fashioned percolator and Cher sprinkles some pepper on the egg. You can hear the sizzle and practically smell everything that's cooking. That's what I was going for with yesterday's lunch. I substituted asparagus for the peppers and copied the scene.
What are your favorite food scenes from movies you love?
(One of mine is definitely the dinner scene in The Birdcage!)
