“For me, the cinema is not a slice of life, but a piece of cake.”— Alfred Hitchcock
It was the Roman gourmet Apicius who suggested, "We eat first with our eyes." Certainly, filmmakers throughout history and all over the world have celebrated the potent, evocative synesthaesia that comes with the cinematic presentation of food and the culinary arts. We celebrate that rich tradition here, enjoying not just the sensory bliss of food being prepared and lavished with attention, but also the emotive stories of love and family that walk hand-in-hand with our cherished dishes and recipes as they're handed down from one generation to the next.
