Film and Foodie: Eat Pray and Love

The Film: Eat Pray & Love- Based on the best seller, Julia Roberts plays the main character of Liz, a lost miserable soul. Pretty early in the film she realizes that her marriage is not for her but she rebounds into the arms of the gorgeous James Franco, a younger man. However, he is not the answer. She comes to conclusion that she needs time to be single and figure some things out. First a few months of indulgent eating in Italy and then a quest for spirituality(balance).

Eat Pray and Love is entertaining but is does not quite live up to the hype. Richard Jenkins, James Franco and Javier Bardem are the brighter spots in the film.

The Foodie: Liz had to learn to let go and enjoy life. She decided to enjoy the pleasures of food its ok if muffin top happens. We watched Liz stuff her face in Italy with proscuitto and melon, pizza and chicken carbonara then prepare an American Thanksgiving dinner turkey. Then we watched her eat naan in India and down a Thumbs up soda with Richard Jenkins. In Bali, unfortunately, we did not get exposed to their cuisine. However, coffee and rice are cultivated there.

Face it, the Irish & Italian-American Actor Bradley Cooper Sizzles

Valentine's Day: Bradley Cooper, Julia Roberts

He played the character Face in the remake of the A-Team Movie,  the star of the Hangover showed women a case of when He’s(your husband) Just Not That Into You, shared scene stealing moments with Julia Roberts in Valentine’s Day, it is fairly obvious to say Bradley Cooper’s career is sizzling.  And did we mention that he cooks too!  In an interview with People magazine the actor shared this statement:

“I seriously love to cook… My grandmother was an amazing cook. As a kid I used to help her make handmade pasta, Cavatelli and Ravioli. It was one of my favorite things to do. I love the idea of making whatever is in the fridge into something.”
Before his breakout success in movies, his love for cooking had a chance to be played out in Fox’s Kitchen Confidential where Cooper’s character was based on the memoir of star chef Anthony Bourdain (Cooper’s character is renamed Jack Bourdain).
What else do women want to know about the tall piercing blue-eyed actor? In an interview with CBS News he shared  if he had a girlfriend, he would cook her “whatever she wants.”
