Food and movies go together, that's a fact!
Tomorrow is Valentines Day and a lots of people consider a perfect date to be having a dinner and then going to the movies.
Food is one of the central themes in life and movies narrate stories about it, so i decided to show you my TOP 1 Movie with/about Food.
My all time favorite movie about food is actually a movie about love...
Like water for chocolate
The storyline takes place in Mexico during the mexican revolution.
It is a love story between Pedro and Tita who are forbidden to marry each other.
Instead, Tita's mother Elena forces Pedro to marry Tita's older sister, which obviously breaks Tita's heart.
To add insult to injury, Tita's mother forces her to prepare the wedding meal and the cake.
Heartbroken she cries over the cake batter and when the wedding guest eat it, everyone starts to cry for a lost love.
This is where Tita becomes conscious about her power to seduce people around her with her cuisine.
And it remains the only way she and Pedro can continue loving each other without being untrue.
Great story, great feelings, a lot of sensuality and symbolism as well as metaphors mixed with a cuisine to die for. Go and see for yourself!
The day of love and lovers is approaching.
How do you look at the Valentines Day? Is it encore plus a day to celebrate love? Or just a commercial trap made by florists and candy makers to make you spend even more of your money?
Do you gift your beloved ones big time just show that you care with a simple gesture?
My all time favorite Valentine gifts must have been a week end trip to Paris, a city where my hubs and i fell in love almost 7 years ago.
The funnies one was the Singstar video game and micros... Normally we use to sing loudly in the shower, with neighbors complaining.
He once said to me Love is music and we are black and white notes...i'll never forget that. We're the perfect match.
If you don't have the time to go on a short trip, there are still lots of ideas for Valentine Day's gift that you could consider:
Chocolate Body painting set... we actually tried this one!!
