What’s not to love about the name of this much awaited film that is being released today on Friday the 13th – Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman’s Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia. The film is a 2006 memoir by American author Elizabeth Gilbert. The memoir chronicles the author’s trip around the world after her divorce, and what she discovered during her travels. The film doesn’t seem to have very great reviews, but I love the title. A now clichéd phrase which seems to embody the essentials of life, a set of words I imagine everyone can connect to in their own little way!
Create that perfect macaron inspired by a movie: whether old or new, comedy or drama, black & white or in glorious Technicolor, let that movie inspire, fire up the ideas and pull you into an imaginary world of cameras, lights, costumes and scenery. You are the screenwriter, the director, the cast and crew… now to produce an award winning cinematographic macaron!
My mind was set on this film, that was partly shot in India. The title Eat, Pray, Love reflected everything I felt about macarons, maybe not in that order though, so seemed the natural choice! I L♥VE macarons, it’s probably one of the only things I would PRAY for feet to appear, and EAT? Oh YUM YUM, these little creatures make for absolutely delightful mouthfuls! Pure indulgence and a joy to feast on, feet or no feet! Well, I dressed them up in costumes!!
Eat, Pray, Love didn’t help me find feet, but did give me some darned delicious macs that were cute like buttons. Also gave me a chance to dress ‘em macarons up in some royal icing. The feetless characters made for very yummy mouthfuls, sandwiched with a milk cum dark chocolate ganache. I added some light olive oil to the ganache once it was made as I had eyeballed the cream and it was slightly less. Olive oil gave the ganache this super shine, wonderful texture and taste. It’s always a fun journey trying to find feet, and to there’s always something new waiting to be discovered.
