Film buffs in for a culinary treat with The Foodie Movie Club

Hungry film buffs are in for a treat with the launch of a new club that celebrates cinematography and fine dining in Dublin's city centre.

The Foodie Movie Club, founded by food writer Ketty Elisabeth, invites guests to indulge themselves in a food-themed film before heading to a nearby eatery to tuck into a movie-inspired dish and a tipple or two.

"Last month we debuted with a screening of 'Julie & Julia'  before going around the corner for a delicious Beef Bourguignon and a glass of red. It was such a success and everyone really enjoyed it," said Ketty who also runs popular blog 'French Foodie in Dublin'.

This week foodie movie clubbers can expect to get cosy within the plush golden seats of Brooks Hotel's cinema to the tune of Disney's 'Ratatouille' before drifting La Maison for a fill of the traditional French dish.

"I think there is such a strong link between film and food and I am thrilled to be screening food movies that I love.

"This month I am excited for everyone to enjoy the film and experience an authentic Ratatouille in one of my favourite Dublin restaurants," she said.

The upcoming movie club meetings, taking place on April 23 and 28, will set punters back €30 but Ketty promises that the evening is huge value for your buck.

"The ticket includes entry into Brooks Hotel's very cool private cinema, popcorn, a main dish, a glass of wine, but most importantly a relaxed atmosphere and the promise of great company," she said.

Film buffs are in for a treat

Dinner and a movie has long been considered the classic date night agenda and Ketty reckons that love might just be found between foodie film fanatics in the city.

"For the first screening, I think there was only one man in a room full of women so he had a great opportunity to meet someone," she laughed.

"I think it is a great date night, but also a great way to meet like minded people and become involved in a community of foodies who share the same passion and that is always exciting," she finished.
