Films for Foodies


By Kristopher Kegel

The 2018 Food in Film Festival is to be held at Bellas Artes on February 22, 23, and 24.

Eva Eliscu and Kris Kegel are cooking up some very good foodie films for the 2018 three-day Food in Film Festival.

The festival begins with Cooking with Stella at noon on Thursday, February 22. This delightful comedy is about a Canadian woman who is a diplomat and lives in India with her husband, an out-of-work chef. And then there is Stella their mischievous cook. The rest is laughs and fun!

This film is sponsored by the Restaurant “Paprika.” One of the favorite restaurants of many locals where you can enjoy tasty food with great jazz music.

After the film, the chef from Paprika will present all the ticket holders of this film with Botanas, a small tasting of Indian cuisine for everyone to enjoy. Cold beer will taste very good with the Botanas from Paprika. The beer is sponsored by La Choperia.

At 3pm, time for Kirsten West, owner of the cooking school Piña Azul to give a 60- minute lecture, “From Maiz to Tortillas,” the fascinating history of one of the oldest foods in the world. Location: Auditorio Miguel Malo at Bellas Artes.

Dieta Mediterranea, the evening film of the first day of the festival is scheduled for 5pm. This Spanish film is about a young woman from a small seaside village in Spain with a lot of talent inside the kitchen. She wants to become a five-star chef; however, she has to choose between the man she loves and a career. How will this end? This film is sponsored by El Vergel Bistro and Market.

Chef Magda Pablos will surprise all the ticket holders of this film with a taste of Spain. A glass of wine to accompany these Botanas will be offered and sponsored by Hank’s.

If you haven’t taken the ride out to El Vergel Bistro and Market, you should. You will enjoy a great meal in the countryside and take some goodies home for your table offered at the gourmet market.

Hank’s is one of our favorite places for a drink or two, and you may also stay on for dinner. It is also one of the best people-watching places in San Miguel.

The Food in Film Festival has partnered up with “So Others May Eat,” a charitable organization feeding people in need every Wednesday behind the Parroquia. By purchasing a ticket to one or all of the six films during the three-day Food in Film Festival, you are greatly helping this organization to purchase and prepare food so that others may eat.

The 2018 Food in Film Festival is an event where old and new friends can meet, enjoy a film, and have a culinary experience.
