Food is a curious thing for human beings. There is something almost intimate about the kitchen beyond just eating. It is a space in which we come together, break bread, and bare our souls to one another. It is a space where friend and enemy alike can share a space in peace. It is a neutral place. The family meets in the kitchen, we create together and express love through food. There is no doubt that many a wonderful movie scene has taken place in the kitchen… this week on CinemaJaw we take a look at our favorites.
Joining us is a man who knows his way around a kitchen. Jack C. Newell is the director of a documentary film (now streaming) called 42 Grams, in which he follows an up and coming chef from running an underground “guest-araunt” out of his apartment to opening his own brick and mortar and going for some Michelin Stars. Jack’s camera practically photographs the aroma! This is a fine dining film that will leave you hungry for more!
So sit down, relax. We’ll be your server for the evening. On the menu? A great podcast!
