Little Italy (2018)

Ep. 67

We watched 2018’s – not 1986 or ’95 or 2003 – Little Italy, so you probably don’t have to.

Sophie & Mitch try to make sense of a seemingly timeless Little Italy neighbourhood in Toronto, filled with Brooklyn/Italian accents, bad hair dyes, and lazy stereotype humour. And also everyone’s suuuuper horny? It’s almost as baffling as this week’s Buzzfeed quiz.

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.

48 – Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat: Fat

We begin a 4 week journey into the Netflix series Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat. It, for whatever reason, starts with fat.

Fat is flavour and boy does this show have flavour! We visit Italy to see how olive oil is made, what makes focaccia bread so delicious, how to break down a pig, and how cheese is birthed. So many different ways to utilize fat in your cooking!

And yes, we’re aware that we mispronounce Samin’s name. We’re sorry that we’re hacks & frauds, but here we are.

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.
