"Food and film, a marriage made in heaven,
With this book it gets its proper leaven."
--John Simon, theater critic for New York Magazine
"Francine Segan has given us a gift by providing us with ideas
for many memorable evenings. Food, like movies, brings us together
and allows us to share romance, adventure, and laughter. From the
first bite to the last, Movie Menus will help every cook
write his or her uniquely sumptuous script."
--Executive Chef Michael White, Fiamma Osteria, New York "This delightful book will conjure up fond memories of great movies and the meals that accompanied them-both on and off screen."
-Richard Pe a, Program Director, Film Society of Lincoln Center
