You know you've got an entertainment addiction when your favorite baked ziti recipe comes from "The Sopranos Family Cookbook." A friend, who will remain anonymous because I fear for my life, confessed that he's making this special dish tonight for his super lady-friend.
While I found the confession hilarious, I also identified. (Please don't have me whacked, anonymous friend.)
I, too, watch too many movies. I, too, take culinary cues from the big screen and the theater stage.
Favorite candy? Reese's Pieces. ("E.T.")
Favorite wine? The pinots. ("Sideways.")
Favorite healthy drink? Moloko. ("Clockwork Orange.")
Favorite bar food? Meat pies. ("Sweeney Todd" and "Titus Andronicus," thank you very much.)
Favorite dessert? Honey. (Figure it out.)
Right now I'm searching for a ratatouille recipe, because my wife thinks I'm Anton Ego. My ego also rivals Peter O'Toole's.
I want to know: Do you cook what you see on screen and stage? Do you have a favorite movie recipe and a shameful story to go with it?
Please embarrass yourself.
