I think it might have been a challenging movie to find and I apologize for that. Wendy found her copy at the library and I know I purchased it for viewing on Amazon.
And it also wasn't a typical genre for our movie picks or the movies we prefer, I suspect. But I am glad that a few of us were able to watch and get inspired into the kitchen.
Elizabeth of Literature and Limes served Japanese Chicken Legs. She wrote, "While not my favorite of movies, it was still cute. The imagination throughout was fun and did wave a great plot line together."
And she created a winner of a recipe that was teen-approved. That's always a plus. "I was inspired by the scene where Chihiro’s parents devour the food and turn into pigs. Her mom appears to be eating some type of poultry. There are dumplings, rolls. I probably would have eaten all that food too. But I decided to try my hand at these Japanese Chicken Legs. My 13-year-old announced at dinner that they were the best chicken drumsticks she’s ever had."
Wendy of A Day in the Life on the Farm shared her Soboro Don, a Japanese Ground Chicken Bowl that is slightly sweet and completely delicious. Wendy posted: "There is tons of food in this film however the scene that touched my heart was when the Spirit that is assigned 'the human' offers her comfort with a rice bowl."
