Oscar Eats

We’re celebrating the Oscars Food Network-style, with menus inspired by each best picture nominee (see all the posts here). Today, last but not least, two films starring young, strong-willed females: True Grit and Winter’s Bone. Both are set in the wild countryside and call for down-home country cooking (plus a few great puns).

True Grit Menu
In this remake of the classic John Wayne Western, U.S. Marshal Rooster Cogburn (played by Jeff Bridges) helps a girl track down her father’s murderer. Chow down on some cowboy-style campfire grub to get into the gritty spirit.

True Grits
Make delicious "True Grits" the star of your movie-themed menu.
