Good food & dining has been the inspiration of many a good movie, from Eat Drink Man woman, to My Dinner with Andre, to the best food movie of all time, Big Night.

Another, lesser known movie with a slightly different food theme is from Robert Rodriguez' "Mariachi Trilogy," the ridiculously amusing Once Upon a Time in Mexico. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0285823/

In it, Johnny Depp plays a deranged CIA agent, Willem Dafoe plays the drug cartel kingpin, Antonio Banderas plays El Mariachi, (or "El" for short. Ridiculous, I know) and sexy Salma Hayek plays sexy Salma Hayek.

In one great scene involving a very small sub plot, Depp's character explains to "El" that the cochinita pipil he just ate was so good, he going to have to kill the chef, to "restore balance to the country."

Here's the scene: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y91O3PsLKvU

Here's Rodriguez explaining his recipe: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gO8EiScBEjA

Here's a print version of the recipe: http://mexican.food.com/recipe/cochinita-pibil-or-puerco-pibil-simplified-278649

His cochinita pibil has become something of a Super Bowl Sunday tradition around here. It goes great with guacamole, salsa and Mexican beer. If you can't find achiote paste, or annato seeds, (or don't have a spice blender like me) I find Goya's brand of Sazon con culantro y achiote packets to work just as well
