Segítsüti Reloaded 2017

(Current post is a unique one related to the event of a Hungarian charity organization called Segítsüti. If you wish to join the event, please, drop me a message. Thanks!) Eltelt egy év a legutóbbi Segítsütis felajánlásom óta, és kérdés nem fért hozzá, hogy idén is csatlakozom az adakozó kedvű gasztrobloggerek csapatához. Annak, aki nem…

Blog Birthday Celebration Pie ( The Waitress)

It’s been roughly a year that I started this blog. It made me think in a creative way, brought me lots of joy, and thankfully I could share these pleasures with my family and many of my friends. I recently watched the movie The Waitress, which is literally speaks in pie terms. It inspired me…

Rosey Wedding Cake (Like Water for Chocolate)

The title plays upon the duplicate meaning of the Spanish saying “como agua para chocolate” which, on the one hand, refers to a person with intense feelings (mainly sexual), on the other hand, it may also point to someone in anger. Tita is driven by exactly these two feelings: she is desperately in love with…

Mush Dreams (Wild)

“… her wounds came from the same source as her power.” /Adrienne Rich, The Dream of a Common Language/ Rarely we think of our wounds as possible sources of power. Today I listened to a presentation about why the victims of domestic violence would not leave. The presenter herself was a victim. And she was…

Bridget’s Blue(?) Soup (Bridget Jones’s Diary)

Day 1 I will make a blue dish. Without any artificial colouring. Having a look at Bridget’s soup, Mark Darcy said “ blue is good. If you ask me, there isn’t enough blue food…” And he was so damn right. So it’s my mission now to find a way to cook something blue and something…

The Perfect Omelette (The Hundred-Foot Journey)

“Food is memories.” /Hassan/ I like watching movies about the Indian way of cooking because they have a very special approach to cuisine. They do not only taste, but they smell, feel and hear the ingredients; they don’t cook with utensils but with and undistinguishable passion inherited through generations. There is no such thing as perfectionism…

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…
