Synopsis: Movie Menus pairs classic movies with easy recipes updated from historic cookbooks to help you create a sensational dining experience for any film genre.
Both foodies and film buffs will find their passions fulfilled in this deliciously cinematic cookbook, which gathers authentic recipes from the cultures and eras portrayed in your favorite films: Old-Fashioned Southern Fried Chicken with Gravy to savor with Gone with the Wind; Spaghetti and Meatballs with Eggplant for The Godfather; Pan-Seared Steak and Onions with The Alamo; a Victory Garden Salad for Patton.
The chapters are organized into ten distinct film genres—everything from “Pharaohs and Philosophers” and “Knights and Kings” to “The Wild West” and “Romantic Dinner for Two”—with a dozen or so recipes each. Treat your family to a complete meal served in popcorn bowls while watching Shrek, or enjoy a Renaissance feast with Shakespeare in Love. Spiced with film factoids, black-and-white movie stills, famous lines, and bloopers, Movie Menus is as fun to read as it is to use, and promises to be a classic.
From the Back Cover:
"Food and film, a marriage made in heaven,
With this book it gets its proper leaven."
John Simon, theater critic for New York
“Francine Segan has given us a gift by providing us with ideas for many memorable evenings. Food, like movies, brings us together and allows us to share romance, adventure, and laughter. From the first bite to the last, Movie Menus will help every cook write his or her uniquely sumptuous script.”
– Executive Chef Michael White, Fiamma Osteria, New York
“I grew up in Hollywood at the knee of my father, Mel Blanc, who’s voice graced hundreds of films, including five Academy Award winners. Movies and home cooking were the mainstays of my childhood. Movie Menus brings great food and great movies together in a way that entertains, informs, and nourishes! As Bugs Bunny would put it, ‘Eh, what’s cookin’ Doc?’”
-Noel Blanc, voice of Looney Tunes
“This delightful book will conjure up fond memories of great movies and the meals that accompanied them–both on and off screen.”
–Richard Peña, Program Director, Film Society of Lincoln Center
