Wellfleet Preservation Hall
There’s trouble abuzz in the fifth Food on Film series presented by Wellfleet Preservation Hall and Lola’s Local Food Lab, featuring fugitives from the law, from the kitchen, and from ones’ own psyche and moral center.
This year’s theme……Southern Odysseys: Culinary Sojourns. We’ll be steppin’ lively like a Cat on a Hot Tin Roof!
Our protagonists are all on a personal odyssey in search of redemption, which happen to take place in southern states, where cuisine and culture provide simple inspiration and remind us “the treasure you seek may not be the treasure you find.”
The series will provide a nice dash of heat this winter and inspire some awesome small plates that will accompany each film.
Thurs. Jan. 12, Tonight’s feature: FRIED GREEN TOMATOES (1991) – 2 Oscar Nominations
Directed by Jon Avnet from a screenplay by Fannie Flagg adapted from her novel. Starring Kathy Bates, Mary Stuart Masterson, Jessica Tandy, Mary-Louise Parker and Cicely Tyson. A feast of acting talent serves up stellar performances in this classic, reflecting southern manners of hospitality with a dash of hostility. Chocolate is the mnemonic choice of Evelyn Couch, as she is mesmerized by tales she isn’t certain are tall.
