An Invitation: Spinning Plates #FoodNFlix

For the April edition of Food'N'Flix, I am inviting any bloggers who want to join me to watch Spinning Plates*.

This the story of three restaurants and the people who make them what they are. I haven't watched the movie yet myself! But I was intrigued by the line-up: a cutting-edge restaurant named the seventh-best in the world, whose head chef must battle a life-threatening obstacle to continue his passion; a century-and-a-half old restaurant, still standing due to its unbreakable bond with the surrounding community; and a Mexican restaurant whose amateur owners are risking everything just to survive and provide for their family. 

These stories of love, legacy, passion and survival seem primed to be etched into my brain forever - to illustrate how meaningful food can be and the power it has to connect us to one another. And I've been a fan of Chef Grant Achatz since I saw him in Season 2, Episode 1 of Chef's Table on Netflix.

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!

  • 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: April 28th (noon, Pacific Time). 
I will have the round-up posted before the month ends.

  1. I watched this over the weekend and loved it. Achatz was born and raised in the area in which I live. We have tons of Achatz restaurants in our town and the surrounding towns and their pies are sold everywhere in Michigan. This made the documentary feel personal to me.

    1. I'm so excited to hear that, Wendy. I'm flying blind here. Just picked it because I liked Achatz' story. Can't wait to see what you post.

  2. I would love to join in on this Camilla. So I just post a recipe on my blog after watching the movie, and email you the requested info from above?

  3. Hope you join us April! Camilla, I just emailed you and am doing three posts (to make up perhaps for missing last month). I said that I would post the last one on the 29th. I will fix that and change it to the 28th. Thanks for hosting! Loved it!

  4. My post is going live tomorrow Camilla, I'll email you my info soon. Really enjoyed the movie, and am looking forward to next month. Thanks for the welcome Debra :)
