Babette's Feast

This movie was recently recommended to us by a friend. It was fantastic! I messaged said friend saying, "Just finished Babette's Feast... I think it changed my life". A beautiful depiction of a remote, pious community awoken to the glorious pleasures of exquisite French cuisine. I cried. It was a good thing I had a full meal beforehand, otherwise you would have seen me rummaging around my kitchen trying to whip up a grand gastro-creation. If you love food and it pleases you to feed others, watch this film! We borrowed this movie from our local library (for free!).

I also found this beautiful painting while searching for an image from the movie:

Saint Martha in her kitchen (Vincenzo Campi, d. 1591)
