Cooking Demo: Food on Film
Images of food, eating and culinary celebrations have always been a major source of symbolism in cinema. As in real life, food on film can conjure feelings of home, hearth, nurturance, greed, overindulgence and sensuality. Chef Shellie Kark (kitchencue.com) takes on three great films that include iconic scenes of food and eating; we’ll show you excerpts from several foodie films, then our chef will share the techniques for bringing the best cinematic food to your kitchen. Recipes and samples included.
Timballo: from Big Night (Italian)
This isn’t just food, it’s theatre; Timballo (or Timpano) is a special occasion dish that has endless regional variations in Italy. In the film Big Night it is the centerpiece of a restaurant celebration hosted by two brothers who’ve pinned their hopes on whether or not the Timballo turns out. Chef Kark will show you how its done.
