Eat Drink Man Woman
Reel Eats is the brainchild of Mary Luz Mejia....a lady that is always full of great ideas. Reel Eats is a monthly dinner event that combines food, film and storytelling.
For the inaugural event, Mary Luz chose to honour the Chinese New Year by selecting the film "EAT DRINK MAN WOMAN". The film is about Master Chef Chu who creates exquisite & elaborate dinners for his three beloved daughters. It's his way of keeping his family close and talking. Inspired by Chef Chu, our dinner was comprised of multiple courses and was be prepared by Chef Vanessa Yeung. Master Chef Chu would have been proud of Vanessa's menu.
In between courses, we were entertained by stories from 3 storytellers. They were Diana Tso (playwright), Carol Devine (author "The Antarctic Book of Cooking and Cleaning") and Grace Lynn Kung (Gemini-nominated actress). Each shared a story from their lives and how their experiences related to food and the themes of the movie. This was truly a memorable night.
The next Reel Eats event will feature the movie "The Big Night"! I can't wait!
