If Golden Globes Movies Were Food: The Fighter as Irish Beef Stew


Golden Globes Beef StewHere we are. We’ve come to the end of tonight’s rousing Golden Globes game: What dish would each Golden Globe movie be if it were food? How have you guys been doing so far? Or maybe I should ask how I’ve been doing! Let’s see where our Golden Globe nominees stand:

* Inception as Cherpumple
* The Black Swan as a duo of Nutella Pudding and White Chocolate Blondies
* The King’s Speech as Cherry Lemon Scones
* The Social Network as Macaroni and Cheese 8 Ways

Which brings us to The Fighter.

This movie, based on a true story of two fighting Irish-American brothers from Boston, needs a hearty dish, ideally with Irish roots. Something strong and stalwart, like boxers themselves. Something filling and fortifying, the kind of food that sustains a boxer in condition. I say that Beef Stew is the ticket.

I’ve chosen to highlight Beef Stew because it’s a great slow cooker recipe. Game aside, I’m watching out for you family cooks, and I know you can never have too many reliable slow cooker meals. But, if you want to stay true to the spirit of the game, you might want to go for this Irish Beef Stew.

Either way… have we got a winner?!? (At least for Best Supporting Actor we do!)

Hope you had fun playing. Stay tuned for more movie-food fun next year.
