I usually try to keep this blog relating to all things culinary- we do restaurant reviews, post recipes and talk about awesome food purchases (plus review our own home cooked meals). So keeping with the culinary theme, here is a movie review, on the awesome new Pixar movie Ratatouille.
The film, for those of you who don't know, is based around a rat, who has a burning desire to be a chef- and was absolutely hilarious (and quite touching). It is definitely my fave of the animated movies to date (partly perhaps because although I am not a scuba diver - Finding Nemo- I am a cook, love food and have worked in a kitchen. The depiction of the kitcehn with the evil master chef and other side characters was spot on (well as spot on as a movie about a rat who can cook could be). There were lots of little side foodie jokes (I love the fact that the villain was a guy who wanted to manufacture frozen foods), and most importantly the culinary parts, pairings, recipes etc all seemed to make sense. In fact the ratatouille that is the climax of the movie really did look quite delicious.
I urge all of you food loving readers to head out and see this great movie soon!
