Eat Drink Man Woman

I love this movie! It's about a Chinese family and the patriarch who is a famous chef. The family shares its meals together, which leads to some bonding as well as some interesting conflicts. Overall, it shows how food and especially meals, bring people together. When I was in Ecuador and Mexican, we ate all our meals huddled over a fire. Other cultures sit in a circle or around a large circular table and eating together is an daily ritual. I am thankful that when I was growing up, we ate breakfast and dinner together at the table, with no TVs or telephone. It is a great way to connect daily. Enjoy!
