I have had the funnest day ever on Twitter. I am not kidding! Who knew that so many people would come up with so many great answers to this question! It is so true that Food nurtures our souls and so many aspects of our lives! We are more passionate about food than almost anything else. It all started with one little question… What is the greatest Food Movie ever made?
My all time favorite “Food” Scene has been the same since the first time that I saw this movie…. Of course, this is also one of my all time Favorite Movies! Being an immigrant, I totally related to this movie the first time that I saw it!
I could remember thinking my friends would think my family was so “weird”…. my Mom always cooked Portuguese Food and in an era where grilled cheese, PB&J & Spaghettios were the norm… Bacalhau, clams, chorizo & Pasteis De Nata were not something my friends were accustomed to eating.
I can still remember bringing Ron home from College for the first time to meet my parents. Here I was bringing home this blond hair, blue eyed boyfriend to meet my parents who spoke broken English, cooked things he had never heard of and would greet him by kissing him on both sides of his face. Not to mention, they wanted me to marry a nice Portuguese boy!
I’m sure you’ve guessed it by now…. MY BIG FAT GREEK WEDDING is my favorite food movie and the “He don’t eat no meat” is my favorite Food Scene…. I can relate to this movie on so many different levels. You have no idea!
Every time that I even think about this scene, it just brings me back to my childhood.
What is your all time Favorite Food Movie or Scene?
