Food & Film event for Charlotte Street hotel

Leading food personalities are to select the movies for a new Food & Film event at London's Charlotte Street hotel.

Jonathan Phang of Food Network's Caribbean Hunger Phangs and author of The Pepperpot Club is to kick start the series of films with the screening of What's Cooking?, starring Mercedes Ruehl, Julianna Marguiles and Alfre Woodard.

The film will be screened in the hotel's cinema, followed by a question and answer session, book signing and three-course dinner, devised by Robin Read, executive chef of Firmdale Hotels (owner of the Charlotte Street hotel), and Phang.

"The film's many themes reminds me so much of my own upbringing - migration, shattered dreams, confused cultural identities, sexual orientation, parental disappointment and the notion that somehow a good meal will solve everyone's problems," said Phang. "Like my own household, food is at the very heart of each flawed family, allowing their unique culture, heritage and traditions and a place to belong."

The first Food & Film event will take place on Monday 29 April at 6.30pm. Tickets are £49 per head for a Caribbean cocktail, three-course dinner and movie.
