In collaboration with arthouse movietheater Natlab in Eindhoven, we organized a culinary movie night where you not only watch the movie but also taste it. A menu of 1 cocktail and 4 appetizers are composed exclusively for this night and inspired by the current movie. We serve these appetizers during the movie to complete the experience, so watch it = eat it & drink it!
We were wondering if we could intensify the movie experience by adding in another sense to experience it with. This resulted in these fun and experimental movie nights, where the movie determines the menu. Imagine watching the main character of Estomago fall in love with a prostitute while eating the same pasta as they are, or seeing Fantastic Mr. Fox by Wes Anderson and being able to eat the cookies from Mrs. Bean, or even watching La Grande Bellezza where they discuss how risotto is always better the second day while you are eating second-day-risotto arancini (famous Italian risotto snack).
