GourmetGiftBaskets.com: Flick-Inspired Foods.





Flick-Inspired Foods.




Food and film make the perfect pair. Schedule some couch time and design a menu around one of these movie classics. You can get fancy with a famous French recipe or just roll through the local drive-through, all depending on which movie-inspired food suits your mood.










Champagne for Breakfast at Tiffany’s.


                             (Theatrical Poster: Image Link)

Nobody does breakfast quite like Holly Golightly, Audrey Hepburn’s character in this classic film. Tap your inner Manhattan socialite by indulging in champagne and sweets for breakfast while watching Hepburn in her most memorable role. Leave the stove off; Hepburn’s character can’t even cook rice.


Feeling extra decadent? Have gourmet gift baskets filled with bubbly and truffles delivered to your door.



Goodfellas Prison-Style Pasta.

It’s cold outside and you have nothing but time. Make an Italian-style feast with the same precision as our favorite Goodfellas gangsters using this Food Network recipe for Italian-American meatballs. Pair the meatballs with a homemade sauce and your favorite pasta, then pop in the flick.


Don’t forget Paulie’s system of slicing the garlic. He uses a razor blade to slice the garlic so thin that it liquifies in the pan with just a little oil. Oh, and the onions. Not too many onions, OK?




Chocolat Dreams.

So maybe the critics didn’t have fabulous things to say about this film. But watching Chocolat gives you the perfect excuse to gorge on the sweet stuff, and who’s going to complain about that? Sit back and relax with a box of your favorite assorted chocolates.





Julie & Julia’s French Feast.


                             (Theatrical Poster.  Image Link)


In this 2009 film, based on a true story, blogger Julie Powell tries to cook her way through iconic chef Julia Child’s first cookbook, “Mastering the Art of French Cooking.” She allows herself just 365 days to plow through 524 recipes.


For those of us with less time on our hands, let’s focus on just one of those famous recipes, Boeuf Bourguignon. The dish is delicious but difficult to make. If you can manage to get it right, you won’t have to spend the movie drooling over one tasty-looking meal after another.




Pulp Fiction and a Royale with Cheese.


                                (Theatrical Poster.  Image Link)

Thanks to one of the movie’s most memorable scenes, we all know how to order a Quarter Pounder in France. Stop by your local McDonald’s for a meal that is perfectly suited to this Quentin Tarantino classic.

Not into fast food? Make your own cheeseburger at home with this healthier recipe from Epicurious. You can still call it a Royale with Cheese, we promise.

    start my own blog soon but I'm having a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I'm
    looking for something unique.
    P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had
    to ask!
