And again, we end another round of Food ‘n Flix. This month we traveled to Mexico to visit Tita and her family. This movie had very fantastical elements, while still hitting on the very essence of humanity. Tita can infuse her food with her emotions which have profound effects on the eaters of the food throughout the movie. The wedding cake made everyone cry, the quails in rose petals made everyone sexual – Tita could control how people felt by what she made them and how she was feeling as she cooked it.
I hope everyone this month enjoyed our movie pick. If you want to participate next month, Culinary Adventures with Camellia will be hosting Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs!
Speaking of Camilla, she made us our first dish for this month’s movie. Camilla made a beautiful dish full of flowers, the Passion Igniting Quail in Rose Petal Sauce. She didn’t say, but I’m wondering what type of passion this dish ignited!
Caroline from Caroline Makes also made a version of a poultry in a rose petal sauce, making Chicken in Rose Petal Sauce. Despite the hurdles of not being able to get certain ingredients due to the seasons, Caroline forged ahead! Her version of this dish looks lovely and I’m sure ignited some passion as well!
The next dish up is my Chicken Breast in Mole. I decided to stick with the chocolate of the title and make Tita’s mole. I loved it.
Wendy from A Day in the Life on the Farm was next and shared batch of Mexican Fritters. Though she was tempted to make the amorous rose petal sauce dish, she decided to make something more family friendly!
Joanna from What’s On The List? cooked with Mexican chocolate, making a festive microwave brownie, which she has dubbed Joanna’s Mexican Chocolate Microwave Brownie. I wonder what mood eating this would put me in? But I’m guessing it would make me happy!
Debra from Eliot’s Eats brings us our next dish, Chorizo Stuffed Chiles in Walnut Sauce. Though she was unable to find pomegranates, she made a beautiful version of Chiles en Nogada. What a lovely recipe!
And with that, we transition from Mexican dishes to spaghetti – or whatever else inspires you for next month’s film, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs!
