It’s Oscar’s time and I thought I’ll mention an interesting article on movies about food. Besides LOVE, a common theme among film makers is FOOD. Countless movies feature the subject, among them 2009′s “Julie & Julia,” starring Merryl Streep as Julia Child.
Paste Magazine has recently released a list of Best Feature Films About Food (below). Is your favorite movie among them? Do you believe some are missing? I would argue that on that list Chocolat was my favorite, but I guess that is a matter of “taste”. Here is the list:

Allgäuer Cheese Soup – a soup with a blend of melted cheeses, ground beef, finely chopped mushrooms and onions….so yummy! We’ve had someone actually name it “Liquid Cheeseburger Soup”. That’s actually quite fitting.
Wilted Spinach Salad – Baby spinach tossed in a warm bacon, potato dressing and garnished with pine nuts, endive leaves and pine nuts
Chicken Gulasch (see below)
Due to the weather conditions we will NOT BE OPEN tonight,

We apologize for any inconvenience caused.

Cindi Sullivan graced us again with her infectious laughter when she and her fabulous crew did a show at the Gasthaus back in December. The live segment was not just about the Gasthaus and its food, but also about some German Christmas traditions and a game in which callers were asked to guess the meaning of German words with a Christmas meaning.
While Cindi covered just about every corner of the restaurant, interviewing staff and others, our guests enjoyed a delicious Burgundy Roast with scalloped potatoes.
Later, Santa Claus showed up and gave away presents to everyone, old and young alike. He even had a few moments to spare for the TV camera and posed for pictures before leaving again. We’re sure to see him around again soon, possibly once he’s shed his beard and costume….
Either way, enjoy the pictures below. Sorry, they are a bit delayed….
