Celeste Heiter's Adventures in Asian Food & Film

Happy New Year! And Welcome to Chopstick Cinema for the Month of January 2008

Chopstick Cinema

This Month's Film: The Bridge on the River Kwai
Cuisine: Sri Lankan

Ain't it wonderful!...Opening your eyes at the dawn of a shiny New Year, filled with all kinds of promise and potential. As always, I have a thousand well-intentioned resolutions. But today, I'm playing hooky to go see Sweeny Todd with my two favorite fellas.

And first thing tomorrow, I'm off and running with this month's film selection, The Bridge on the River Kwai, with a Sri Lankan menu to go with. Never having cooked or even tasted a morsel of Sri Lankan food, no doubt I'm in for yet another culinary adventure.
