This was originally posted on my main blog on Nov 16th 2010 So don't worry, I haven't lost my mind completely yet and mixed up my days of the week. Yet. but I did realize I had forgotten to add it here to my list I've been trying to create of foodie movies/food in the movies posts.
Taking a short break this morning from the book reviews cause I'm getting a headache, and have Julie/Julia in the dvd player. It's got me thinking, about a few foodie movies that are on my can't wait list.
One is Soul Kitchen which I believe gets a Canadian dvd release next month. It's a subtitled film about a guy who's cafe is going downhill till he hires a prize winning chef. I saw a trailer for it months ago and have been waiting as impatiently as I can for it to be released here.
Today's Special was just released in the cinema this week. Of course, it's not scheduled for my city cause Thunder Bay sucks. But it's on my can't wait list. When I first saw the poster for this one few months ago, I wasn't too sure about it, as it's about an East Indian chef, and after having been greatly disappointed by another East Indian foodie film Cooking with Stella; well the trailer for Today's Special changed my mind. It's suppose to be about a sous chef who has to return to his family diner and take over the business.
The last foodie movie on my can't wait list is a documentary called Kings of Pastry which also was just released in Canada about a month ago, which once again did not come here and I have to wait for the dvd. My city sucks I know. But it's a documentary on the pastry masters competition.
They all look yummy and I can't wait....
