Big Night (1996)

Ep. 61

We just watched the wonderful film Big Night (1996), aka Two Brothers with a Restaurant and They’re Italian.

We discuss the impressive directorial decisions, the written & visual storytelling, and a final scene that is one of the best from any movie we’ve seen – food-related or otherwise. Plus drunken octogenarians, Italian Bilbos, and so much more.

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.

52 – Food on the Go (2017)

Sophie & Mitch go over a delightful little documentary about Italian food: Food on the Go (E il cibo va) (2017).

How does food travel and how does it change when it does? What happens to Italian cooking and techniques when they immigrate to the United States or to Argentina? All of these questions are at play in this week’s episode.

05 – Chef’s Table: Massimo Bottura

Sophie and Mitch try to do something…provocative: attempting to understand the madness of Massimo Bottura, the first featured chef on Netflix’s documentary series Chef’s Table Vol.1 Ep.1.

We discuss the 1990’s fairytale of Massimo & Lara’s love story, the amount of cheese in ones’ flesh, and how art & food can become one spectacular thing. Also #breadisgold
