    Inspired by another thread...

    What's your idea of a great movie/meal/beverage combo? One of my choices would be something along the lines of The Magnificent Seven, a nice bowl of avgolemono soup with pita slices and saganaki, and a frosty Old Speckled Hen. Or, a spin of In the Mood For Love, a bowl of gnocchi with pesto, and a glass (or two) of Amarone.

    Have at it... [​IMG]

    I love that In the Mood for Love combo. [​IMG] I’ve never tried an amarone with pesto and gnocchi, but it seems to be a perfect match.

    Here are two more:

    The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, chicken fried steak and Shiner bock beer

    The Age of Innocence, Tornados Rossini (thick, fillet mignon topped with fois gras, a truffle slice, Périgueux sauce) and a 20 year old bottle of Hill of Grace (an Australian shiraz).


    You did not think I’d stay away from a food & drink thread?

    Tonight we're having my wife's superb fried rice and dumplings, a nice pinot noir (life is short, drink the pinot first!) and another showing of Winged Migration on the big screen.

    se7en, as much pasta with marinara as you can eat, and to drink a swift kick in the gut.

    Seriously, I don't group movies and food/drink in my mind. If I'm eating what I like and watching what I like it doesn't matter if it matches or not.

    Meal: Two triple cheeseburgers from Wendy's. No veggies, add bacon. Large fries.
    Beverage: Coke.

    This was my routine through the seven times I saw FOTR theatrically. Gained five pounds in the end, but it was worth it [​IMG]

    Boy, Ricardo, when can we go to the movies? You must be a blast to sit next to. How about corn on the cob wrapped in real noisy foil? [​IMG]

    Movie: The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly
    Food: Pork Baby Back Ribs with Famous Dave's BBQ Sauce (Texas Pit) and Seasoning
    Drink: August Schell's Pilsner

    Reason: Ribs require time to cook. Patience is required when cooking, which is similar to the Good the Bad and the Ugly. One cannot watch this movie without patience, yet if someone can be patient they will enjoy not only an excellent film but fantastic food. The beer: I love Schell's Pilsner from Minnesota, and I know of no beer that tastes similar to it. If anyone knows please tell me because I moved to Oregon and I can't get it anymore.
