Everyone wants to share a healthy, loving, life-long relationship with their spouse or partner. But, most couples (no matter how much in love they are) don’t know how to make that level of life-long commitment happen, and as a result they fail in their efforts to stay together in a healthy and productive way.

Is it really possible for couples to strengthen and lengthen their relationships by engaging in activities as simple and enjoyable as preparing dinner together, watching a movie and discussing it? The answer is YES! According to the New York Times and USA Today in February of 2014, a study conducted by Ronald D. Rogge, PhD Associate Professor of Psychology (et al) at University of Rochester, found that couples can watch romcoms together as an inexpensive, yet effective method of couples’ counseling. Kissing in the Kitchen, The Romantic Comedy Cookbook for Couples is the perfect companion to the University of Rochester study and a great way for couples to build stronger relationships at home.

Kissing in the Kitchen, The Romantic Comedy Cookbook for Couples takes the University of Rochester study to the next level in an effort to increase the chances for couples to not only watch romantic comedies together, but to have fun with them by spending active time together preparing a delicious movie-based meal.

Foodie Scenes in Get On Up, The James Brown Story

Get on upGet On Up is full of great soul music that will make you twitch in your seat. The choreography was sublime. While watching I felt like I was really seeing James Brown, which is a testament to the skillful acting of Chadwick Boseman who brought the icon back to life in the funkiest way possible. Chadwick’s moves and groove are very much worth experiencing.

The food is at a minimum, but there was some. The first scene below features a Catfish Basket and some beautiful fluffy biscuits. The catfish looked tasty. It was golden and appeared to be crispy; just enough to spark my imagination. The second scene below, shows off a southern feast of : Fried Chicken, Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans and Corn Bread and don’t forget the Sweet Tea. For that reason, Get On Up has made it to the Fellini’s Kitchen blog.

The Hundred Foot Journey, a Feast for the Soul

hundred foot journey14It is official, I am in love with this movie.  Lasse Hallstrom has done it again! The Hundred Foot Journey is not just delicious food, it’s not just classic France or opulent India and breathtaking cinematography; It’s a sweet and compelling story about proud “culturally” defined people, leading  deliciously dramatic and enticingly authentic, dedicated lifestyles.

As a cultural tourist and movie foodie, this movie spoke to every cell in my body. I can not say it enough, I love, love, love this movie. It is fantastic and entertaining and that is what I want in a movie like this. It was like a two hour vacation.  I get more than enough ugly stuff on the news every day!

So what about the food?  Word has it that “Top Chef Masters” winner Floyd Cardoz is the mastermind behind much of what we see on film and without the use of a food stylist. Cardoz came up with the omelet spiced with coriander and the boeuf bourguignon infused with ginger, Aleppo pepper and cumin. According to Cardoza, this is real food. The food is amazing from the first scene until the very last, this movie delivers the food.  Here is just a taste:

Chef is the must see movie of 2014

06082014 Chef 2The irresistible movie Chef has me so excited; it is a real foodie movie.  This slice of life film has it all: great characters, awesome food, a wonderful story line, travel and gorgeous actors ( , , ,and  and actresses ( and ).06082014 Chef 3

Writer, producer and yes lead actor Jon Favreau strikes just the right chord in this foodie movie love song.  The movie is soulful yet funny as heck. If that is not enough, this movie was classy enough to give the Food Stylists their due credit as so many do not. The Food Stylist was Melissa McSorley and the Assistant Food Stylist was  Nancy Goodman Iland.  Great work ladies.

Lets talk about the food.  One of the things I liked most about the movie was the way food was used  to map milestones  on the lead character Chef Carl Casper’s journey to his authentic cooking flavor; a concept akin to a musicians looking for their sound or  writers looking for their voice. Chef was being held back by a boss who was comfortable producing beautiful, edible but uninspired and pretentious, go with the flow, haute cuisine standards (i.e. caviar eggs, seared sea scallops and molten lava cakes). His heart craved more but his job demanded less.  By the time the movie wrapped up, I had experienced Chef’s journey through, the savory Floridian,flavors of  mojo Cuban pork, the spicy creole bite of New Orleans cuisine  and the unmistakable smokey satisfaction of Texas barbecue; what a delicious ride. I know because I’ve eaten at each one of the restaurants he visited, Versailles in Miami, FL, DuMonde’s in New Orleans, LA and Franklin’s in Austin, TX .

i sure hope you like the movie as much as I did.  In the meantime here are a few recipes to help you do the “Chef” thing at home. Chow for now!

Here Comes The Boom – 2012 Has Coq Au Vin In It!

here comes the boomHi all it’s me Stacey”The Movie Foodie” Moore and I am weighing in on the movie Here Comes The Boom.  In the movie Kevin James (who I think is so funny) is a teacher with a few issues, who steps up to the plate when times get tough for the school.   Normally a movie like this would not catch my interest but I was channel surfing one day and got pulled in by a foodie scene.  In the scene, his friend or brother,( not sure who the character is) prepares Coq Au Vin and it looked great so I found the next showing and watched the whole movie.  Surprise, surprise, it was a fun movie to watch.  By the end I was officially having a good time.  Great for the whole family.

There is a lot of good food here worth mentioning:  See recipes below.

Coq Au Vin, Chili, Lettuce Wraps, Meat Balls and Rigatoni, Caesar’s Salad and a Cherry Cheese Cake that I can not forget.  There was more but a lot of it was out of focus so I could not figure out what it was.

Here is a link for the trailer  - Here Comes The Boom

I am Stacey ” The Movie Foodie”  Moore and that’s a wrap!

If you liked the movie let me know.  Also, is this movie worthy of a Foodie Film or Food In Film Status?

Are you a Movie Foodie?

Is anyone out there?

SoleFellini’s Kitchen is all about getting Movie Food information into the hands of people who will enjoy the information most.  My posts have been sporadic at best I know.  Part of my challenge is not knowing if I am talking to myself or if I am talking to others who really enjoy movie food.

If you can, please leave a comment and let me know what you want to know about movie food.  I really do have a wealth of information to share along with a passion for the over all topic.

Also, I want to know what you know about the whole fabulous area as well. Someone, Please, talk to me.  Lol

Haute Cuisine is a real Foodie Movie on Netflix now

Haute Cuisine is a delectable recount of one woman’s journey to culinary perfection while cooking in the private kitchen of the president of France. This movie proves that,”a woman’s place is in the kitchen, if that’s what she wants.”

In spite of the fierce male competition Hortense, (Catherine Frot) a very talented


cook who loves preparing authentic French Cuisine reigns supreme.

I am just going to say it.  Haute Cuisine is a real foodie movie and I am happy to induct it into my personal Foodie Movie Hall of Fame.

There are at least four recipes I will look for right away:

1) Salmon in Savoy Cabbage, 2) Filet en croute 3) Cuddle Fish and Seafood with a Fume Blanc  4) Fruit of the Forrest Pie with Grannies Cream,  she actually give us the directions for this one.

The Food Stylist for this really tasty movie is Gérard Besson.

Have you seen this movie?  What are your favorite recipes?  feel free to share.


The Grand Budapest Hotel is a Banquet of: Fun, Imagination and Food!

Wes Anderson’s Film, “The Grand Budapest Hotel” with it’s weighty all star cast, is just plain fun.  

gbhThe movie is full of belly laughs that you never see coming.  Exemplifying the elegant days of a bygone era of European glamour seems to be the main plot here.  You will simply love this adventure as Gustav H ( ) and his Lobby Boy, Zero () set out to survive with an air of panache.  With that said, what about the food?

There was food.  Much like the movie itself, the food was almost cartoon-ish in it’s grandiosity.  Two things I have to admit here: 1) it was hard to watch for the food because the movie was so captivating and  2) The  description of the food being ordered was in most cases more fun to imagine than to actually see on screen.

dinner gbhThe menu as I captured it  and confirmed via Fox Searchlight was: Gruel , Salad, Rabbit, Duck roasted w/ olives. Lamb and potatoes and  Mendel’s Courtesan au Chocolat (pate a choux, chocolate custard, buttercream, candied pecans).The exception was the Courtesan au Chocolate which I can not wait to make. See instruction video below

Here is a real treat I found on YouTube – Step by step instructions for creating Grand Budapest Style Courtesan au Chocolate – the adorable pastries in the movie

Movie Foodies, based on the menu, I think we can do better visual representations.  I can’t help but wonder if there were amazing shots of the food that ultimately ended up on the cutting room floor. Oh well,  this movie really had the potential to satisfy my movie food cravings but in the end, I was left with more imaginings than satisfaction.  Good thing for me imaginings can be the playground for great fun!

This is your favorite “Movie Foodie” saying, ” The Grand Budapest Hotel is bloody good fun!”
