37 – Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs (2009)

Time to dive into one of the few food-film-franchises, beginning with 2009’s Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.

Sophie & Mitch talk about the insanity of both the protagonist and the concept of food falling from the sky. We also break down all the small details and character work going on in this film. Not only that, but we continue our meatball talk with a small report on the history of the form.

35 – Flavors of Youth (2018)

Let’s look back for simpler times, but let’s do it with the 2018 internationally released anime anthology film: Flavors of Youth.

Sophie & Mitch break down each of the three chapters of the film and how they address (or don’t) the Chinese idiom “yi shi zhu xing” [clothing, food, housing, transport]. We also talk about the issues with titling, expectations, and our conflicted feelings towards this gorgeous film.

26 – Chef’s Table: Dan Barber

Sophie brings the heat as she, and Mitch, delve into what’s so infuriating about Dan Barber, the focus of Chef’s Table Vol.1 Ep.2.

We discuss the contradicting dichotomy of being abusive – yet focused on sustainability, we talk about what it means to be a truly model modern chef, and we break down the vagueness of American cuisine.
