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 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!)
