It’s time for this month’s Food ‘n Flix. In FnF, participants watch the selected movie, cook something inspired by it, and share!
I looked at the cover art and got a bit nervous, because it looked scary (and I hate scary movies and avoid them at all costs), but I checked out the movie description and it seemed alright – mostly playing out in the fantasy realm.
The movie starts out with Ofelia traveling with her pregnant mother to go and live the “the captain”.
-Did I mention that this movie isn’t in English? It takes place in Spain during a civil war.-
Ofelia’s mother is struggling with her pregnancy, the Captain is cruel (more on that in a bit) when Ofelia meets a faerie and comes to realize that she may unwittingly be the daughter of the king of the underworld. But to prove that’s she’s not been tainted by mortals, she must complete 3 tasks.
