The Cook, the Thief, His Wife, and Her Lover (1989)

It’s time to look at ugly things through a beautiful lens, which means it’s time for 1989’s The Cook, the Thief, His Wife and Her Lover.

Sophie & Mitch talk about this grimy movie and what make it so intriguing to watch. We talk about the distance style creates between an audience and a piece of art. We discuss how presenting crass or vulgar content can serve a greater purpose. It’s a loaded conversation for a dense film!

Always Be My Maybe (2019)

Ep. 58

We’re talking about the 2019 Netflix film staring Ali Wong & Randall Park: Always Be My Maybe.

Sophie & Mitch gush about their new favourite movie, how refreshing it is for a mid-level romantic comedy that doesn’t just repeat tired tropes, and how these characters’ relationships with food reflect their inner struggles and all that good stuff.

54 – Chef’s Table: Nancy Silverton

We return to Chef’s Table to see what Nancy Silverton is all about; apparently it’s doing a whole lot of different things. We explore bread-making obsessions, coaxing flavour out of ingredients, and grilled cheese nights!

Plus we provide some channel updates right at the top of the episode, so don’t miss that.

50 – Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat: Acid

Finally on track with the titling in Netflix’s Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat. Episode 3 is all about Acid

We’re visiting the Yucatan in order to see all the different things to use acid for. With a wide variety of citrus, a surprising type of honey, and a few other acidic ingredients, Samin Nosrat shows off how all of this balances your food.

47 – Love’s Kitchen (2011)

Valentine’s Day is coming up so we wanted something lovely; we watched Love’s Kitchen (2011) instead.

We crack open this pretty-much-made-for-TV-movie and try to figure out what is going on. Why are people eating desserts with two fingers? Why is the daughter cast 7 years older than written? Why would you name your restaurant “The Boot”?!

46 – Mostly Martha (2001)

We’re repeating ourselves this week with the 2001 German film Mostly Martha!

We discuss why this movie is so tasty & why the American remake No Reservations (2007) was so bland. We solve issues of adaptations, talk about what makes for compelling drama, and figure out how long it takes to drive from Hamburg to Italy.

44 – Tampopo (1985)

We watched the first ramen western: 1985’s Tampopo.

Sophie & Mitch discuss this spectacular genre-pun film, with all its food-related glory. We talk about how food can be intimate – in lovely or icky ways. Also learn about some delightful ramen history & our inspiring trip to Tokiwa Ramen.

And here’s that How to Eat Ramen video.
