Food ‘n Flix Announcement for September: Frida

Food 'n Flix Club Logo

I am happy to announce the September Food ‘n Flix feature film:  Frida.

You may (or may not)  know that September not only marks Mexican Independence Day (Spetember 16), but it also marks a collaborative event with Cook the Books.   Last month, I announced that I was hosting the August/September round for CtB with The Secret Books of Frida Kahlo.  To coincide with the Cook the Books event, I am also hosting Frida  for this month’s Food ‘n Flix.

Julie Taymor (of Broadway’s Lion King fame) directs the film. Be prepared for some surrealist and fantastical scenes.  Also be prepared for some great performances by Salma Hayek, Alfred Molina, Edward Norton, Antonia Banderas, Ashley Judd, Geoffrey Rush, et al.

Please join both clubs, Cook the Books and Food ‘n Flix, for this paired event. You can post a recipe for one or both or do a combined post. Just email me ( with the name and url of your post(s) and a picture (or permission to pull from your website). For the CTB announcement post, click here.
