Revisiting Chocolat - Celebrate 10 Years of Food 'n Flix!

Join #FoodnFlix in the kitchen as we celebrate 10 years while revisiting our very first flick pick, Chocolat! #FoodnFlix
This month we're celebrating TEN YEARS of Food 'n Flix by revisiting the very same movie we drew inspiration in the kitchen from that first time—Chocolat! The first invitation to participate was short and sweet; I wasn't even sure if anybody would join me. I just thought it would be fun to take all of that delicious inspiration from a movie that I loved into the kitchen. But people did join in! And we had so much fun that we've been doing it over and over again for 10 years.

We've watched at least 120 movies together over the years. We've been inspired by obvious foodcentric flicks as well as some where we had to dig deep to and really get creative in our inspiration. Some movies we've loved, others we'd really rather not remember. Some months we've had a ton of participants, others just a couple. Hosts and participants have popped in and out, have stepped up to take leadership roles when things overwhelmed me in "the real world", and have just lent great support and friendship over the decade. I am thankful for each and every food and movie lover who has been a part of Food 'n Flix over the years!

Want to join us in celebrating the past decade...and looking forward to the next one? All you need to do is watch Chocolat, then head into the kitchen and concoct a recipe inspired by the film. If you really want to dive in, some of us are also going to be reading the Joanne Harris book by the same name that the film is based on (as part of the Lit Happens Book Club on Facebook created by longtime member Camilla from Culinary Adventures with Camilla). If you choose to read it, be sure to talk about both in your post—I'd love to hear your thoughts on how they are the same, how they differ, which was the most inspiring in the kitchen...
