Ideal film to combine with a wine tasting. Sideways is a light comedy about two middle aged buddies on a last wine tour before Jack gets married. Drink with - of course - Pinot Noir. 

good film

Sideways is a feel good roadmovie from 2004 of director Alexander Payne. It takes you to sunny California. Two middle aged friends, Miles and Jack, tour in the wine country to taste wine. During the trip they sort out their lives before Jack gets married. A film with many wine tastings, failed careers, friendship and women. The film won a Golden Globe and an Oscar. It has since become THE iconic wine film and after the release, the sale of Pinot Noir in de US rose by 14%.


Ofcourse, the Cinema Culinair version of this film cannot do without a good Pinot Noir. 

drinks and snacks

great timing

You drink what you see in the film. Good film + good drinks + great timing. The clou is in the timing. An example. When Jack and Miles have their first wine tasting at minute 18 and 25 seconds, you do exactly the same. One minute earlier or later determines whether it's a good experience or an excellent one! The essence is to experience the film with all senses. 

when is the next shof of this film?

Sideways is one of our films+drinks, an event we organise once a year

Recept uit The Lunchbox: Bharwa Bhindi

Een mooi en heerlijk gerecht is Bharwa Bhindi, gevulde okra. Okra is in Nederland bekend uit de Surinaams en Cajun keuken, maar in de Indiase keuken is het ook gangbaar. Okra is een vruchtgroente, in de categorie van courgette, paprika en aubergine.

Recept uit Estômago: Negroni cocktail

Het is precies 101 jaar geleden dat de Italiaanse graaf Negroni in Florence zijn cocktail uitvond. Na een bezoek in het Amerikaanse wilde westen was hij niet meer tevreden met zijn favoriete cocktail, de Americano, en vroeg om een extra tic in de vorm van gin in plaats van water. De bartender voegde een sinaasappelschil toe en voila, de Negroni was geboren.
