movies I will not do classes on....

When I first conceived this idea, I decided that there were certain movies -- let's call them "obvious" -- which I just would not do a class on. not that they're bad movies, it's just that they are, you know, "obvious."

Then this morning I spied @ food buzz a link to this woman's blog and her list of her "top 10 food movies." I clicked over and it was like she had organized a list of my "don't do" movies. And so I'm reproducing that list for future reference.

The Class: Casablanca

Borani Laboo (Beet & Yogurt Dip) with Pita Chips
Sultan’s Tajine (Chicken Tajine w/Preserved Lemons and Sultanas)
Whole Wheat Couscous with Toasted Almonds and Dried Cranberries
Moroccan Mint Tea Sorbet

The inaugural “Chef du Cinema” class was a huge success. I want to thank all the folks who showed up as well as the Central Market Cooking School (especially Meredith, Scott and Louis) for helping to make it all happen and go so smoothly. We were sold out and everyone left satiated and happy.
