It was reported recently that more than 50% of Americans would rather eat a memorable dinner than experience a great night of sex. So I’ve been sneaking food porn into our Netflix que. I’ve gone into our que and quietly and moved Troy’s foreign documentaries down the list and moved my Foodie flicks up.
Due to my circumstances, I didn’t see many movies in the 90’s, so I’m indulging myself by catching up.
Last night’s movie was “Big Night” If you are passionate about anything, especially food, you must see this film (or see it again). Big Night captures beautifuly and with humour the powerful emotions that food can express in our relationships. One of the messages the film brought across, through Primo the older brother, was to never compromise your passions. I like that one.
I’m planning on taking some classes at the Kansas City Culinary Center this year. While flipping through their schedule I noticed a class called Big Night.
The class recreates the meals from movie including Timpano the amazing dish that Primo wows everyone with. It is traditionally made in a metal tub and consists of layers and layers of beautiful Italian stars such as homemade ragu, sausage, pasta, vegetables, hard boiled eggs etc. — all layered between hand-made pastry dough. WOW!
Better than sex? I don’t know about that. but I can have sex anytime – Timpano? I would imagine it’s a once in a lifetime experience
