Ginger & Pear Tarte Tatin (City of Angels)

It’s strange to write about and recommend a movie that I do not think is a masterpiece, isn’t it? So I write some about a film, instead,  that I think is a masterpiece and a few about its poor remake that contains one engaging scene: the description of the taste of a pear. But no…

Cosmopolitan New York Cheesecake (Sex and the City)

I must confess I am a huge fan of Sex and the City and I don’t know the particular reason for that. In most cases I find Carrie Bradshaw tiring, sometimes her contemplations are a bit empty and her problems seem so far away from me. But the other characters are much more interesting. My…

Boeuf Bourguignon (Julie & Julia)

I decided not to lie about anything in this blog. If something is not delicious, I will tell you. If I mess up the food, you’ll know about it. To be honest, I have just thrown out the remains of boeuf bourguignon, not that it was that bad. On the contrary, it came out quite…

Strawberry Bavarian Crème (Julie&Julia)

So here we are. I am making a dish from Julie&Julia, the movie that every food blogger appraises and that encourages film-lovers to make a journey to the hidden corners of their kitchen. I heavily resisted to fall in line and I remained strong for months. But the truth is, there is something in this…

My Blueberry Pie (My Blueberry Nights)

My Blueberry Nights is full of momentous dialogues and superbly created images that make this movie so loveable. Jeremy, the very talkative and friendly coffee shop owner has a habit: he keeps the keys his customers left there for someone who never came for them. Cheating boyfriends, cheated girlfriends, trusting old friends; the jar is…

Onion & Cheese Bisque (Ratatouille)

One of my friends called my attention to the fact that there is no soup to be found on my blog. Then I called his attention to the fact that, although I like to please my audience, I don’t want to make dishes just because it is “out of stock”. I always stick to my…

Ratatouille

Yay, it’s spring! Everything is freshy fresh, markets are full of colours and the undistinguishable scent of ripe strawberries hover over the stands. This time of the year I become trusting in good things to come and bad things to go. One of my dreams (and probably the dream of many others) is to visit…

Supreme Chocolate Cake (Chocolat)

  Nowadays I encounter probably the most difficult part of blog writing: I find it particularly hard to put into words the feelings I have when I watch a certain scene or the whole of a movie. For instance, I still search for the right words to describe what I actually feel when I watch…

Segítsüti akció

(For English-language version, please, scroll down.) Rendhagyó bejegyzés a mostani. Jótékonykodok és sütit sütök. Egyszerre. Miről is van szó? Sokadik alkalommal indul útjára a Segítsüti elnevezésű akció, amelynek keretein belül 30 gasztroblogger bocsájtja sütijét árverésre, az így befolyt összeget pedig jótékony célra fordítják. Az idei támogatott a Démétér Ház, akik a Szent László Kórház Csontvelő-transzplantációs…

Seductive Spaghetti (Chef)

In my Cubano sandwiches post I already mentioned that the reason I go for this movie is that it has a simple and uncomplicated approach to everyday pleasures in life. This view is reflected in this quick and moderate spaghetti dish as well. Surprisingly (and luckily), the movie mostly lacks hidden sexual references to the…

Coconut-Chili Hot Chocolate (Chocolat)

  Chocolat (2000) is an example of movies where food is so tempting one cannot resist preparing them right away. Every time I watch Juliette Binoche stir the melted chocolate, so creamy and bright, makes me fall in love again and again with this lavish material. Chocolate is luscious, sensual and interpreted as the ultimate…
