by in News, Recipes, February 22nd, 2011

Can’t make it to the Oscars? Grab your ballot, don your formal wear and make snacks instead, themed to match all the nominees for Best Picture. Every day this week, we’re featuring a new batch of ideas for two of the films (See all the posts here.) Today: The Kids Are All Right and Inception.  Pit family dram-com against science fiction with these plot-thickening snacks.

Turducken (Or if you’re stuck on layer 7 of a dream, try an Ostemugooturduckenuailinch.)

Passionate Dream Cocktail

The Kids Are All Right (But the Food is Better)The food in this movie is all about local, local, local. Sure, Nic (Anette Benning) and Paul (Mark Ruffalo) butt heads on the virtues of the heirloom tomato, but no self-respecting locavore would eat tomatoes in the wintertime.  Instead, make these dishes with winter’s bounty.
