Weekend Cooking is open to anyone who has any kind of food-related post to share: Book (novel, nonfiction) reviews, cookbook reviews, movie reviews, recipes, random thoughts, gadgets, quotations, photographs. If your post is even vaguely foodie, feel free to grab the button and link up anytime over the weekend. You do not have to post on the weekend. Please link to your specific post, not your blog's home page. For more information, see the welcome post.
Rob Haley is interested in cooking "real food with real heart." He doesn't want to become a celebrity chef, but the critics and magazines hound him because his restaurant is such a success. That is until a family tragedy causes him to lose his cooking mojo.
Three years later, after he's run his restaurant into the ground, he decides to start over by buying a country pub. He gathers up his old crew and they set about bringing the building up to their exacting standards. Of course, there is a pretty young woman, moments of miscommunication, and a new town to win over. Rob, his daughter, and the staff have a lot of work ahead of them.
Yes, I know, the movie is predictable, but Dougray Scott couldn't be cuter, and the kitchen scenes will make you sigh. Oh, and you'll be craving trifle long before the movie is over. Love's Kitchen is the perfect pick for a stay-at-home evening. But, really, don't forget the trifle.
