I can't say that I have just one favorite movie. I have a list of about 10 movies I will call my absolute favorite depending on my mood. One of these is A Room With A View. Like an old friend, it never fails to lift my spirits on a bad day Last week while perusing the cooking section in a used bookstore I came across this treasure, Ismail Merchant's Florence: Filming and Feasting in Tuscany. Cast and crew members of the film share their memories of Merchant's fantastic meals cooked during the filming. 70 of his recipes are included. I am suitably inspired and impressed.
