I am excited to be hosting Food ‘n Flix this month, and thrilled to be sharing one of my all time favorite movies, Big Night.


The movie, the acting, the actors, the food, the story – all of it is fabulous! Two Italian brothers, Primo and Secondo, come to America and open a restaurant. The majority of the movie focuses on one big night, where they gather a large group of guests, a well known jazz musician, their combined talents and amazing food in a last ditch effort to save their restaurant.

If you have yet to see this movie, watch the trailer:

It will make you want to watch it, or watch it again.
