Food and movie

with 2 comments

I bought an immersion blender. For a while now, the idea of getting one has been bouncing around, and I finally did get one. So I cooked up a large batch of broccoli crowns (including the stems) in a pot of water, adding salt, pepper, a little freshly ground nutmeg, and a good slug of soy sauce. (The brand I use, Eden’s Organic Imported Shoyu Sauce, has a bouquet like a wine—superb. I added it for the umami.) Once it was done, the immersion blender very quickly made it into a smooth, thick soup, absolutely delicious.

And while I supped on it, I watched Dinner Rush, a movie with Danny Aiello as a restaurateur and bookmaker. It was a good movie: a prologue before the credits, and then the movie takes place in real time—the dinner rush at the restaurant. And it’s a food movie, like Mostly Martha (a wonderful movie), showing the preparation of various dishes back in the kitchen. Very good. I also liked Mark Margolis’s turn as a snob art gallery owner, and Sarah Bernhard as a food critic.

  1. I refer to my immersion blender as “the whirling blades of doom.” But then I also refer to scissor tongs as “wiener squeezers,” much to the chagrin of my fiancée.

  2. I did learn last night how to use them properly—my shirt at the time is in the wash now.
