58 – Holes (1998/2003) w. Sophie Gareau-Brennan

Sophie Gareau-Brennan is here to talk about the 1998 book & the 2003 film Holes.

We discuss the differences between the book & movie, the reasons why this story meant so much to us, and the different children’s books we would make into movies.

Most importantly: Dig it uh oh-oh. Dig it.

So make sure to hit up Sophie via her Twitter if you’d like to chat more about Holes or foodstuffs or other children’s books; or just check out the show we host: We Watch Food

23 – Like Water for Chocolate (1992)

Thanks to our listeners for suggesting the 1992 Mexican film Como Agua Para Chocolate, or as we’ll be referring to it, Like Water for Chocolate.

In this episode we’ll be talking about the differences between breasts & boobies, food idioms, and all the ways in which a traditional family drama can be heightened – so much – with just a little bit of magical food (and probably some witches).

Make sure to follow us on TwitterInstagram, and Facebook to keep up with news, to join the discussion about food, and to check out all of our personal recipes – like Mitch’s Onion Jam!
