|Grandma's Kitchen: Eat Drink Man Woman - Starring .... Food|
Eat Drink Man Woman Book
Eat Drink Man Woman Video
The preparation and consumption of food almost plays the starring role in the movie Eat Drink Man Woman. Requiring the ministrations of three world-class chefs, as well as numerous food specialists, food was possibly given more attention than most actors and actresses in starring roles.
Over 100 different recipes were used in Eat Drink Man Woman with each dish authentically prepared for its presentation on the screen. Ensuring the authenticity of the recipes used in the film, food consultant expert Lin Huei-Yi was called in for recipe selection. In addition, she also coached the actors on the physical preparation of the dishes that would be prepared by their characters on camera. Special choreography was devised to mimic traditional chefs’ movements.
"When Jia-Chien (portrayed by Chien-Lien Wu) is making pancakes, there are actually two chefs making pancakes and three assistants helping," director Ang Lee recalled. "A male chef is throwing the dough on the griddle, but it wouldn’t be possible for his hand to double as Jia-Chien’s, so a woman chef, also an expert in making the pancakes, had to be on set. In that scene, the pancakes are only one course of ten."
The challenge was not always in the preparation. Up to a dozen dishes would have to be prepared, each perfectly steaming for an eight-second shot.
The following are five recipes from Eat Drink Man Woman, not requiring the attention of world-class chefs or food consultant experts. Try these recipes for yourself!
