Cure it with Movies/Books: Masterchef

A few weeks ago, during an episode of the famous cooking show "Masterchef", the contestants had to replicate dishes made in famous movies...They had to do sushi inspired by "Kill Bill" or the apple pie that Meg Ryan asks in "When Harry met Sally", but also Italian classics like the tomato and artichokes spaghetti in the movie "Il Postino" (the Postman).

It was so fun to watch and, since cooking shows like Masterchef, Hell's Kitchen or Bake Off are so popular right now, I thought to put on a themed list!

Here's to you my choices!
