Question from March 16:
What movies or television shows should be turned into meals, and what should they include?
I think Cha Cha Cha should create something called an Ally McMeal. It should include a sprig of parsley and a couple of crackers.
My favorite Italian restaurant serves the best “Touched by an Angel” hair pasta.
A blistering hot sauce named “Armageddon.”
--GRACE E. HAMPTON
They can turn “Saving Private Ryan” into a meal by offering C-rations (combat rations used during World War II) in a realistic setting.
Marina del Rey
“Saving Private Ryan” BBQ: Dreamwurst Spielberger, Grilled Ham on Ryan, Sizemore Shrimp, Blackened Burnfish (served with a Thin Red Wine).
Rancho Palos Verdes
“Titanic” should be made into a sandwich. After you eat it, you want to throw up.
“20 Dates": hearts of palm with scrambled brains. “Wing Commander": fricasseed turkey without the fricassee.
“X-Files” soup du jour: You don’t know what’s in it nor where it came from, served by a waiter who looks like a garden pest.
--WAYNE E. SCOTT
Question for March 23:
Alice “School’s Out” Cooper has foregone the mascara and microphone in favor of sunscreen and a golf club (see story, this page). Can you suggest other unusual pairings of musicians and sports?
