O Brother, Where Art Thou? Announcement Post for Food ‘n Flix

Welcome to this month’s Food ‘n Flix feature film:  O Brother, Where Art Thou?   It’s a Coen brother classic, dontcha’ know.


How ya doin’, boy? Name’s Everett, and these two soggy sonsabitches are Pete and Delmar. Keep your fingers away from Pete’s mouth—he ain’t had nothin’ to eat for the last thirteen years but prison food, gopher, and a little greasy horse.

—Ulysses Everett McGill

As you can see, there’s food references from almost the start (albeit some aren’t the most appetizing).

I found the script online and let me tell you, I have a huge and comprehensive food list that I’ll post with my inspired-by dish.

How to participate in Food ‘n Flix:

  1. View O Brother, Where Art Thou?  Taking inspiration from the film, head into the kitchen and create a recipe or dish.
  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 eliotseats@gmail.com (and cc: heather@foodnflixclub.com). Please include:
  • your name
  • name of blog as you want it written (or Instagram account)
  • name of the dish/drink you created AND a direct link to your post (blog or Instagram)
  • attach a photo or give permission to pull one from your post
  • indicate “Food ‘n Flix Submission” in the subject line

Submissions are due by the end of the day on September 30, 2019!

Whip up a bona fide inspired-by dish.   You could make some comfort food from the Depression Era South, a bread recipe inspired by The Flour Hour and Pappy O’Daniel, something inspired by the travels of Everett, Pete, and Delmar (or the Odyssey, mythological basis of this tale).   Whatever you do, give yourself plenty of time and don’t get in a tight spot this month!
