Queen Anne’s Bitches’ Brew with Emma Stonefruit

(via Serious Eats)

It’s been a long winter/awards season, so we’re getting the party started with a taste of summer. Call it a spring-is-coming love triangle between sweet rum, tart dried apricots, and bright lemon juice. Sure to be The Favourite of all your guests.

After a few of these, you too can lovingly refer to Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz as “your bitches” ala Olivia Colman at the Golden Globes. Down the hatch, Queen Anne!

The substitution of mezcal for tequila gives this classic margarita recipe a smoky twist. Roma is stunning, classically beautiful filmmaking. Take too many sips and you’ll be ready to play dead with Cleo and Pepe on a sunny rooftop in Mexico City.

Me gusta estar muerta, indeed.



Wakandogs Forever

Black Panther shows big-budget superhero movies can be fun and crowd-pleasing without sacrificing quality, much like a mini hot dog wrapped in pastry and dipped in cheese sauce.

You know you want them. Easy to make vegetarian by substituting your favorite brand of veggie dog.


Fried Green Book Tomatoes


(via The Spruce Eats)

This movie, y’all. We don’t need more movies about white people saving black people and solving racism. We never have. Green Book is garbage, so eat some delicious fried tomatoes and let us never speak of it again.


He just wanted another look at ya.

What’s a 2019 Oscar Menu without a Jackson Maine Course? A star has to stay in shape, so our recipe of choice is guilt-free. Delicate steamed white fish served over fregola and spring vegetables.

Plate carefully, bedazzle with a Lady Gagarnish, and voila! A Star Is Born.

Spiked Lee Salad

(via Southern Living)

Celebrate Spike Lee’s long overdue Best Director Oscar nomination (for BlacKkKlansman) with a boozy fruit salad. Suitable for the Oscars or Thanksgiving!

Alternate: skip the salad and roll a Spike Lee Joint with your favorite herb. It’s 2019, we all need to let loose. 😉



Bohemian Raspberry Trifle

(via Martha Stewart)

Overrated Bohemian Rhapsody is trifling at best, unlike this decadent dessert from everyone’s favorite Martha.

Make your trifle even more bohemian by topping it with a vintage bonnet, perhaps fashioned from some old curtains or decoupaged out of concert ticket stubs. Eat carefully if you are sporting distracting fake teeth, though…

Spotted Dick Cheney

(via The Daring Gourmet)

One of our Vices is indulgent desserts, and on Oscar night Spotted Dick will do just fine. Studded with old man spots, err currants, and splashed with cream, Dick Cheney has never tasted better.

Fun fact: at Cinemunch we’d rather be forced to eat Spotted Dick every night for the rest of our lives than watch Vice a single time more. Bon appétit!
