Appetizing Evenings are on the Menu
Sushi/East Side Sushi (2015)
I watched East Side Sushi a few weeks ago and really enjoyed it. It’s about a Mexican-American woman who gets a job working in the kitchen at a sushi restaurant. She loves to cook and begins teaching herself the precise art of making all different kinds of sushi. It’s a fun movie with a clash of cultures—and delicious-looking food!

Bruschetta/Julie & Julia (2009)
Early in Julie & Julia, Amy Adams re-creates one of Julia Child’s favorite quick throw-together dishes: bruschetta. As she crisps the bread in the frying pan and chops the tomatoes and basil, drizzles the olive oil, and sits down to dive in with her husband, it’s true food porn at its best. And that is just the beginning of the movie, where 524 recipes are executed over a 365-day period. Don’t watch on an empty stomach! – Julie Wagner
Pizza/Saturday Night Fever (1977)
Opening scene of Saturday Night Fever—two slices of pizza with a topping of classic music by the Bee Gees and a Travolta strut.

Chocolate/Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory (1971)
One of my favorite things to eat, chocolate (dark is my preference), reminds me of one of my favorite movies as a kid: Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory.
