Description - Movie Menus by Francine Segan
Movie Menus pairs classic movies with easy recipes updated from historic cookbooks to help you create a sensational dining experience for any film genre. Both foodies and film buffs will find their passions fulfilled in this deliciously cinematic cookbook, which gathers authentic recipes from the cultures and eras portrayed in your favorite films: Old-Fashioned Southern Fried Chicken with Gravy to savor with Gone with the Wind; Spaghetti and Meatballs with Eggplant for The Godfather; Pan-Seared Steak and Onions with The Alamo; a Victory Garden Salad for Patton. The chapters are organized into ten distinct film genres--everything from "Pharaohs and Philosophers" and "Knights and Kings" to "The Wild West" and "Romantic Dinner for Two"--with a dozen or so recipes each. Treat your family to a complete meal served in popcorn bowls while watching Shrek, or enjoy a Renaissance feast with Shakespeare in Love. Spiced with film factoids, black-and-white movie stills, famous lines, and bloopers, Movie Menus is as fun to read as it is to use, and promises to be a classic.
