Gastronomy is living a golden age. Far from being a refuge for gourmets and the privileged classes, it is now on the lips of all. And cinema, which has always shown an interest in cuisine (whether it be portraying cooks, setting scenes in restaurants, etc.) is now regularly giving it a starring role in the plot.
At ALCINE we would like to continue investigating the ties between film and cooking, and therefore are holding the Film Dishes section for the second time this year. In conjunction with Alcalá Gastronómica and in cooperation with many of the city’s best restaurants, over the days of the festival, film buffs and diners will have the opportunity to taste all kinds of dishes inspired in great films from the history of cinema. Each restaurant will create a dish especially for the occasion, using its imagination and the references each film offer to marry the seventh art with the culinary arts. A great chance to enjoy a gastronomic route whisking us off to various continents, through various cinemas, evoking images through the taste buds and not just the eyes. A sensorial experience that can be enjoyed with the eyes closed.
