Lastly, I talked everyone into watching "Babette's Feast" last evening. That was actually the first time I'd ever seen it and I loved it!! The kids even liked it, though it was all in subtitles. (It won an Oscar for best Foreign Film.) Anyone who loves food will appreciate the end, when Babette cooks her feast. I loved the symbolism of the food and the realization of the importance of joy in life. The scenery is gorgeous and the food was incredible. That is a talent I wish I did have. I actually found a website where a chef actually posted the recipes for the French feast in the movie! I also loved the message of the importance of giving to others. Someone wrote somewhere, "There are givers and there are takers and the world is more full of the latter." I have always subscribed to the former and find my joy in that.
