Dinner and a Movie

A vegan dinner.

Dinner was simple and vegetarian. Then we watched a movie about the excesses of the aristocracy in France just prior to the revolution: "Delicious" (2021). According to the blurb: 

"France, 1789, just before the Revolution. With the help of a surprising young woman, a chef who has been sacked by his noble master finds the strength to free himself from his position as a servant and opens the first ever restaurant."

Really the film is more visual than dramatic, as they say, a feast for the eyes. There's a bit of melodrama, though. Historically it's a travesty; the less said about accuracy the better! 

Some images from the film via IMDB:

We are grateful to our friends Mary and Marty for suggesting that we watch it.

The roasted veggies look delicious. The movie looks interesting.

The color palette of your dinner practically matches the burnt umber and golds in the images from the movie. Both look delicious--and interesting!

It looks fun -- if not accurate!
