I haven't yet seen "The Help," the movie set in 1960s Mississippi, but I've heard it makes you hungry.
Hungry for justice, for equality, for mutual respect among all human beings? Probably.
But I was really just talking about food.
Don't laugh! I didn't give myself this idea. One food site got Viking Range On-Line Chef (there is a job that sounds like fun) to come up with recipes in tribute to "The Help," "to celebrate the opening of this empowering movie."
Another gave the recipe for Minnie's Chocolate Pie.
Even august Food and Wine weighed in with a list of recipes from "The Help" including Cucumber-Rye Tea Sandwiches, German Chocolate Cake and Tomato Aspic.
Is anyone actually going to make this tomato aspic? It seems to me that aspic is one retro food we will never see come back. Just the name!
Also, tea sandwiches. If anyone in Buffalo makes tea sandwiches as a result of this movie, I would love to hear about it.
See, this is the mark of a really good movie.
It gives you a lot to talk about!
