31 – Delicatessen (1991)

This week Sophie & Mitch watched the cult French film Delicatessen (1991).

Ho-boy what a movie: an apartment building full of weirdos atop a butcher shop after some sort of apocalypse. It’s super odd, super French, and super fun. If you need more strangeness this Halloween, this is the movie for you.

The horror continues with 1963’s Matango: Attack of the Mushroom People!

It’s October, so we’re doing spooky food movies, starting with the classic Attack of the Killer Tomatoes (1978).

Sophie & Mitch talk all about the highs and lows of this movie, the baffling logic of how these tomatoes function, as well as level of zaniness this film reaches at points. So travel with us as we try to explain what, why, and how these killer tomatoes attack.

28 – Iceland Gastrotourism

Sophie and Mitch went to Iceland and ate food; now they’re gonna talk about it.

We travelled across the world just to try different foods, so join us as we recount our mouths’ journey to Reykjavik and beyond! We talk about our different experiences at restaurants around the city; we talk about the intertwining of travel & eating; from protein-rich yogurt to British-style fish & chips to cheese pizzas & wieners, we’ve got it covered. We also talk about how Mitch ate the fermented (re: rotten) shark. We chat about all this and so much more!

If you want to hear the other non-food half of our vacation story, mosey over to Mitch’s podcast: WenghTalk Radio.

WHO? IS? DEADLIEST?

Mitchell Sanregret & Dustin Meisinger are here to talk about a show with a dope premise and a fizzle of a finish: it’s Deadliest Warrior!

We run through all 33 match-ups as Mitch & Dustin try to remember or guess who was the deadliest warrior – at least as the show/Slitherine Studios was concerned. Not only that but we also discuss the video game Chivalry‘s mod for Deadliest Warrior; the definitive gaming experience for this series.

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.

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).

22 – Chocolat (2000)

Magic realism or chocolate witchcraft? That’s the biggest question we have about 2000’s Chocolat.

We debate how we would use our chocolate powers, if we were wandering coco-shamans. We discuss how the film differs from the source novel (and how that’s a good thing). We talk about all the wonderful performances from so many actors in this tasty film.
