Greetings, everyone, welcome to our shared shelf from the rain Valley Community College Library. For this episode, we're doing dinner in a movie to highlight some of our resources available to you electronically. We chose a cookbook prepare to meal and we also watched two streaming videos. My name is Sharon. And I'm Hannah, and we are two Moraine Valley librarians. So Sharon,
tell us about the cookbook you picked out.
The book I chose is dinner for everyone. 100 iconic dishes made three ways easy, vegan or perfect for company by Mark Bittman. This book jumped out at me first because Mark Bittman is a well known New York Times weekly food columnist. I also felt like his approach by using three different preparations for each other Kinect fish was really interesting and different. a vegetarian more now than ever and many of the vegan recipes sounded really yummy. I did not choose a vegan recipe though.
Well so what recipe did you choose?
I actually made green fish curry. It was so good and it was so easy. The recipe called for only a few ingredients and I did substitute trip for the fish. The directions were really straightforward and with the addition of rice, I would make this meal again as it only took 20 minutes to prep and 20 minutes to cook.
So when trust me did you choose Hannah?
Okay, I chose a recipe called skillet teriyaki. I thought the whole book had a wide range of recipes. There's a little something for everyone, which was great and most of the recipes were simple and flexible on the veggie vegan and interpretations were really creative, which is hard, I think. But so the skillet teriyaki. It was a really simple stir fry with a tasty sauce. The recipe called for beef, but it offered a couple of suggestions for substitutions just like you did, so I made it with chicken instead and it was great. I would totally make it again.
Now on to the movies, what do you recommend?
Okay, so I am recommending a movie called hunt for the wielder people. It's directed by Taiko ytt, who is better known for directing source three. But if the movie is available to stream on hoopla, and it's a story about a young boy in New Zealand, she's taken to a new foster family. It's funny, it's touching, it's offbeat. And it explores that kind of family relationship that forms with wit and depth. But it's also an adventure story. Yeah. It features a manhunt through the absolutely stunning New Zealand wilderness which is a thing of beauty. What about you sharing? What did you watch? The film
I'm sharing is called dark waters. It's a biography drama directed by Todd Haynes. It's based on a New York Times magazine article, the lawyer who became du Pont's worst nightmare. The lawyers played by Mark Ruffalo, and he takes on a case that concerns a growing number of unexplained deaths that appear to be tied to one of the world's largest corporations. It's a well active film and there is some star power in it. And throughout the movie, you feel the pain, the dread and fear many of the real life characters I'm sure experienced. I did also read an article that said the movie stayed pretty close to actual events, with just a few minor exceptions. By the way, the movies available on the library's swink video campus
