'Movie Menus'
By: Francine Segan
(Paperback / 240 Pages / Villard; 1st edition / ISBN: 0812969928 / $16.95)

Description: "Food and film, a marriage made in heaven, With this book it gets its proper leaven." - John Simon, theater critic for New York Magazine. Francine Segan has given us a gift by providing us with ideas for many memorable evenings. Food, like movies, brings us together and allows us to share romance, adventure, and laughter. From the first bite to the last, 'Movie Menus' will help every cook write his or her uniquely sumptuous script.

Verdict: 'Movie Menus' is the perfect companion to Oscar night; witty and insightful, an essential for anyone who loves to eat and go to the movies (and doesn't everyone???). 'Movie Menus' pairs classic movies with easy recipes updated from historic cookbooks to help you create a sensational dining experience for any film genre. For example: Old-Fashioned Southern Fried Chicken with Gravy to savor to have whilst watching 'Gone with the Wind'; Spaghetti and Meatballs with Eggplant for 'The Godfather'; Pan-Seared Steak and Onions with 'The Alamo'; and a Victory Garden Salad for 'Patton'. Treat your family to a complete meal served in popcorn bowls while watching 'Shrek', or enjoy a Renaissance feast with 'Shakespeare in Love'. Spiced with film factoids, black-and-white movie stills, famous lines, and bloopers, 'Movie Menus' is as fun to read as it is to use, and promises to be a classic!
