Food 'n Flix: Last Holiday

I had so much fun hosting Food 'n Flix back in December, I pretty much begged Girlichef (the mastermind behind this genius idea) to let me host again this month.  The movie I've chosen is  Last Holiday , starring Queen Latifah, LL Cool J, Timothy Hutton, and Gérard Depardieu.

Queen Latifah stars as shy, unassuming Georgia Byrd, who after learning she only has 3 weeks to live, starts to live the life she's always dreamed of.   Along the way, Georgia befriends Chef Didier (played by Depardieu) who reveals the real secret of life..."Butter!"

Last Holiday is a heart-warming, feel-good movie that reminds us to "love more, laugh more and not be so afraid."

Did I mention that there's food involved?  There's all kinds of yummy, deliciousness to tempt and inspire you.  Everything from New Orleans-style Gumbo to Poulet Tchoupitoulas to Bananas Foster.   All of the food in the film was provided by Food Network chefs.  And there's even an appearance by one of my favorite celebrity chefs....Emeril Lagasse!
