A lot of the chat around the Mob office tends to revolve around food. That makes sense considering that we're a food media company that spend 90% of our time creating recipes for you lovely people. But if I had to take a guess at what the second-most popular topic of conversation around the office was, it'd have to be films and movies. Whether it's about whatever's coming out in the cinema that weekend or some arthouse flick that our graphic designer has seen recently, you can always expect to hear some heated conversations surrounding the silver screen.
We've already rounded up the best food films ever made (according to us), so – to further cement our passion for films and food – we thought it'd be a good idea to go around and ask some of our favourite chefs what their favourite films of all time are and get them to pair a dish with that flick. Why? Because if you can do it with wine, you can do it with movies. Right?
We didn't ask them to tell us their favourite films about food (though some chose food-adjacent films anyway) because we wanted to get a fun pairing with a movie that simply means a lot to them. The responses we got were nothing short of brilliant. These are some food and film pairings that I simply can't wait to try out at my next movie night.
