parties & entertaining : dinner and a movie
midnight in paris

One thing I really look forward to are Sunday nights in with a dinner and a movie. My family and I made this a ritual when I was younger, and I know this is something I want to continue with my family [in the far, far future]. I just love the idea of experiencing a film through a culinary adventure. So, I thought I would start a new series under parties and entertaining called dinner and a movie. A perfectly paired menu from drinks to desserts with favorite classic films.

I've always loved a good Woody Allen film [with Annie Hall being my favorite]. I believe Midnight in Paris is one of those films that accurately portrays Woody's work and demeanor in a modern light. It's romantic, historical, delicate, charismatic-all of which are my favorite descriptions of a classic evening film. 

I thought I would pour a glass of sauvignon blanc for us as I finish garnishing our appetizers, grilled leeks and stewed garlic over toast. As we begin nibbling on our hors d'oeuvres, the brown butter is ready for the trout with brown butter and almonds entree. Once the entree is consumed, we take our glasses of wine [unless you prefer tea or coffee] and our dessert, strawberry verrines, to the living room to watch the feature. 

I hope you enjoyed today's dinner and a movie.

  2. You know, I was not expecting to like Midnight in Paris, but I really ended up enjoying it. Your post is great! I'll have to drop a shoutout to the new series on my next Daydream post—I think that people who like those posts will like your Dinner and a Movie posts!

  3. What a wonderful idea! You are always so creative! Back when we lived in Virginia, my mom would have Charlie and I over for dinner every Sunday night.  This would be so fun to do when we move back - I know my mom would love it! 

  4. Love this movie! What a great Parisian inspired meal to go along with it.

    Have a great weekend Supal!
