BURNT

Last night, we were all invited by Zomato to the Beirut Premier of the long-awaited movie BURNT in City Center’s VOX cinema.

BURNT is a comedy-drama starring Bradley Cooper, Sienna Miller, Omar Sy, Daniel Bruhl, Matthew Rhys, Alicia Vikander, Uma Thurman and Emma Thompson. I absolutely love each of these actors and it was a delight to watch them all in roles of cooks, Chefs, Critics and Psychoanalysts.

In the movie, Adam Jones plays the role of a famous Chef who lost his restaurant because of drugs and unpredictable behavior. When he tries to rebuild his life in London in the hope of gaining his third Michelin Stars, we witness his ups and downs along with his mouthwatering dishes.

I found the movie a bit too long for the plot but for those of us who appreciate cooking techniques, it passed by like a breeze.

BURNT is out on the 30th of October in all cinemas so make sure to watch it if you’re a true foodie! Here’s the trailer if you’d like a preview.

The Second Best Marigold Hotel is the follow up story of Sonny and the gang. It tells the story of now co-managers Muriel Donnelly (Maggie Smith) and Sonny Kapoor (Dev Patel) who take on the challenge of expanding to the second best marigold hotel. Soon enough, the expansion plans start taking a toll on Sonny and his fast approaching wedding with the love of his life Sunaina (Tina Desai).

We watched it last week, and I can safely say that it was the perfect short escape from reality. Not only is the movie fun and entertaining but it also shows a lot about life and new beginnings. It even gave us an idea of where we’ll be going backpacking next. India looks so peaceful and full of colors. Through the movie, I felt their love for life and appreciation of simple and natural things. Also, India is one of the top iconic places to photograph in the World! Another great reason to head there very soon.

7 Inspiring Must-Watch Travel Movies and Their Snacks

One of the best things to do on some nights is to stay in with a nice movie and food. I just love to be transported to another place and another story and travel for a while. Movies make you dream, inspire you, and make you feel you can accomplish anything.

I love all types of movies, except for thrillers. Optimally, the ones I prefer are travel movies. I’ve watched loads of them and I’d love to share the top 7  on my mind today, along with the best snacks that would go perfectly with each.

My favorite 2 are UP and Life of Pi. Don’t get me wrong, I love them all, but these two have touched me until the present day. Even though UP is only a cartoon, it made me see that it’s never too late to go on an adventure and that you will be never left alone in life. As for Life of Pi, because it is based on a true story told by a man who is still alive today, it touched me to the very core. It also showed me the power of our minds and to which extent it can take us. 7 absolute must-watch movies!

Which ones have you watched? Any other snack recommendations?

Foodie Movie: From Bombay To Paris

Breaks break for a reason

This is the lesson you learn from Hassan’s mother in this colorful movie full of emotions. From Bombay to Paris is the story of an Indian family, chased away from their country by politics. They go through a long journey and it leads them to a small french town where they decide to open their restaurant facing a Michelin star one. The “war” between the 2 begins and, through a cloud of spices and colors, we’re all shown that everything in life really happens for a reason. A must-watch for food lovers!

A Foodie Movie To Watch This Weekend

If you love to cook with music in the background or if you’re an aspiring chef, you absolutely have to watch this movie this weekend.

It’s about a chef who has been working at a restaurant for years and who has his creativity hushed by the restaurant owner. One night, he gets a bad review from one of the most important blogger/critiques of the moment and this is when it all starts. He quits his job and gets a food truck. With the help of his son, friend and ex-wife, ‘El Jefe’ becomes so famous you’ll believe it’s real.

This will keep you craving for Cubanos and good food. Still salivating over the dishes he made in the movie. The cast is also really great, starring lots of favorite actors of our time.
