Join #FoodnFlix in the kitchen with Nina's Heavenly Delights

Nina's Heavenly Delights #foodnflix February 2020 hosted at
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.

When I first chose this film, it was available to rent and watch instantly on Prime Video, but alas, that capability has been removed when I recently went to take advantage of it. I was able to order a DVD through Amazon, though...and I'm hoping that anybody who wants to participate is able to find a copy to watch!

All are welcome to join, you simply need a blog or a public Instagram account. I can't wait to see what this film inspires in the kitchen this month!
