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).

12 – Cooked: Water

Sophie & Mitch continue their 4-part journey into the world of Netflix’s Cooked!

Join us this week as we talk about water – but not really. Mainly, we talk about the time cost of cooking, the tension between home & industrial cooking, and how our modern diets can be traced back to 1950’s housewife culture.

Make sure to follow us on Twitter, Instagram, 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 Tomato Soup.
