Nina's Heavenly Delights #foodnflix February 2020 hosted at allroadsleadtothe.kitchen
I'm excited to be hosting the February 2020 edition of Food 'n Flix this month with a new-to-me film, the 2006 British foodcentric rom-com called Nina's Heavenly Delights. This movie has been on my to-watch list almost since the inception of Food 'n Flix (about 9 1/2 years). It's usually included on those lists of "foodie movies" one can find floating around the internet.

It's about a young woman that returns home (after being estranged for 3 years) to attend her father's funeral. She also finds herself having to take over her the Indian restaurant that her father owned, which is apparently in some trouble. She and a childhood friend who now owns half of the restaurant try to save it by entering a national "Best in the West Curry Competition". I'm guessing it must have big prize money, not to mention the intrigue that comes with winning a title like that.

I'm sliding in under the wire with my submission to the January 2020 (!) edition of Food 'n Flix, hosted by Camilla of Culinary Adventures with Camilla. Okay, I didn't make it in under the wire. That was a lie. That wire was a few paces in the past. I'm coming in last. But that's just because the new decade started with a bang! I gave you a little sneak peek of this month's movie pick back in July when I made a dish inspired by it (this Glazed Spam and Rice)...but I'm excited to be able to share another recipe inspired by the Netflix film Always Be My Maybe with you today!

Childhood best friends turned sweethearts Marcus and Sasha are neighbors growing up. Marcus comes from a pretty close-knit Korean family who spend a lot of time doing things together. Sasha and her (Vietnamese) family live next door. Unlike Marcus's family, she spends most of her time alone since her parents are busy running their store.
