Food and movies were born to be put together.  Food in films can be as important as the cast.  When you think about it, food has had a major role in many classic cinema moments.

Becky Thorn takes the “dinner and a movie” concept to a new mouth-watering level in Movie Dinners: Reel Recipes From Your Favourite Films (Portico, and imprint of Anova Books, January 2011), bringing delectable dishes from the silver screen to the kitchen table.
