Crazy Rich Asians Food ‘n Flix Announcement

It has been a long while since Food ‘n Flix and Cook the Books tag teamed an event.

Welcome to the February addition for Food ‘n Flix, featuring the film Crazy Rich Asians.  Please double the fun and also join Claudia (Honey from Rock) who is hosting the novel for the February/March Cook the Books selection.

What will these two works inspire?  East Village pork buns, homemade dumplings, Tupperware meals, an elaborately carved melon?  I cannot wait to see what our two clubs can come up with!   Will it be a dish inspired by Rachel’s New York or Nick’s Singapore?  Will it be homey (like the dumplings) or something ostentatious like multi-million dollar wedding refreshments?

The deadline for Food ‘n Flix is February 28, 2019.

How to participate in Food ‘n Flix:

  1. View Crazy Rich Asians.  Taking inspiration from the film, head into the kitchen and create a recipe.
  2. Post about it on your blog with a link back to THIS POST and a link to Food ‘n Flix.  (Use of the logo is optional.)
  3. Alternately, post a photo of the dish you made on Instagram (public accounts only). You must include the following in your caption: short intro, recipe, #FoodnFlix.
  4. Your post must be current (during month of film). And, of course we don’t mind if your post is linked to other events…the more the merrier.
  5. Have fun with it!
  6. Email your entries to me at (and cc: Please include:
  • your name

Food ‘n Flix and Cook the Books have double-teamed these novels and films in the past:

Again, please join us in this crossover event.  I can’t wait to see the meals these two works inspire.
