I hope the movie is as promising as the trailer suggests. I’d love to see a movie that turns something that many women are interested in — cooking — into something that is valuable and worth the notice of the rest of the world. Too much of what women do is disparaged, particularly when women do it for free — such as cooking for a family — yet celebrated when men to it for pay: which is why so many of the “great chefs” have been men, especially until very recently.
And hey, why doesn’t someone buy my blog…?
