Having got my Tampopo scenes confused I should also give you an opportunity to see the other scene I had in mind where the office junior gets to order all the best food in a posh French restaurant.



I will have to watch the film again to see if he gets to eat it. I must have still been at university when it came out. I remember going to watch it two or three times and maybe that is where my occasional  hankering to make a good chicken and noodle soup comes from.

The film is showing late Sunday afternoon in camp&furnace as part of the Food for Real Film Festival that is taking place in an around Liverpool. the programme is strict in reminding us that it is an 18 Certificate. this no doubt means I will be getting it on DVD and embarrassing  the kids as we watch the inventive scenes that are intercut into the film making explicit some of the joins between good food and sex.
