Food'N'Flix Invitation: The Lunchbox


Food‘nFlixYou're invited! It's my turn to host Food'N'Flix where we watch movies and head into the kitchen and cook or bake or make something based on a recipe they actually make in it or just something we were driven to make after watching it.

This month, I've selected The Lunchbox*. Truth be told: I haven't actually seen it yet, but I've read about it. And I've wanted to watch it since it appeared on my foodie-flick radar. I am always a sucker for anything Indian. So, I hope you'll join me, watch the movie, and be inspired to whip up something fabulous.

The film, set in Mumbai, revolves around a Dabbawala (lunchbox delivery service) snafu that results in a relationship between Saajan, a lonely widower, and Ila, an unsatisfied housewife when they begin exchanging notes through the daily lunchbox exchange.

Here's the official movie trailer to whet your appetite. 

 

I hope you'll join the fun. Watch the movie, then post about it on your blog with a link back to this post and to Food'N'Flix. Use of the logo is optional. Your post must be current (during month of film). And of course we don't mind if your post is linked to other events...the more the merrier. Have fun with it!

Email your entries to me at: constantmotioncamilla[at]gmail[dot]com and include...

  • Your name
  • Your blog's name and URL
  • The name of your dish and the permalink to the specific post you're submitting
  • Attach a photo of any size (or just give me permission to "pull" one from your post)
  • Indicate "Food 'n Flix Submission" in the subject line

Deadline for submission is: February 28th (noon, Pacific Time). 
I will have the round-up posted before the end of the following day.

  4. I loved this movie so much and wanted to make a recipe from the mentioned food, but life got in the way and I ran out of time. Lesson learned though, from now on watch the movie earlier in the month. Can't wait to see what everyone made.
