It’s time for this month Food N Flix! This month’s movie is Midnight in Paris, hosted by Debra at Eliot’s Eats.
This is a new to me movie and I am so glad Debra suggested it! I’m no good at writing synopses, I always leave them to the experts, (why reinvent the wheel?) here’s synopsis from IMDB:
Gil and Inez travel to Paris as a tag-along vacation on her parents' business trip. Gil is a successful Hollywood writer but is struggling on his first novel. He falls in love with the city and thinks he and Inez should move there after they get married, but Inez does not share his romantic notions of the city or the idea that the 1920s were the golden age. When Inez goes off dancing with her friends, Gil takes a walk at midnight and discovers what could be the ultimate source of inspiration for writing. Gil's daily walks at midnight in Paris could take him closer to the heart of the city but further from the woman he's about to marry.
The movie was quirky and funny. I loved the sense of whimsy, the 1920’s setting, and everything. I loved that it made me realize that so many of the great writers and artists of that time would have known each other and interacted on a regular basis. It’s amazing!
I didn’t notice ton of food while I was watching (maybe I was too interested in the story to pay attention to food).
However, I did notice some baguettes in several scenes. So I decided to make my own baguettes. And I also remade croissants!
The baguettes I made were super delicious (I used this recipe from King Arthur Flour), but they didn’t look like the picture! How to people get their bread to rise and brown like that?!? I even bought a baguette pan this time around!
Long story short, I’m going to keep trying on the baguettes until they look like that picture. But if you’re not worried about picture perfect - definitely make these baguettes - they are delicious!
You took the classic route. So glad you enjoyed the film! :)ReplyDelete
