Spudguns!, it's that time of the time again, when I offer you up something for Foodn'Flix. This month's selection is The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, and it's being hosted by Culinary Adventures with Camilla.
plot: A young writer looking to switch genres, is asked by her publishers to write about how literature is affecting people. At the same time, a strange letter arrives for her from a man who has inherited one of her old childhood books. He explains his situation, that he's started a book club, and is in need of more books asking if she'd mail him something. Not only does she mail him a few titles, she decides to travel there herself to do her essay on the book club. The night before she's set to leave, her boyfriend asks her to marry him. Unsure if that's really what she wants, she ends up staying more than a month with the book club finding out more and more about the people of the small community.
This is based on the novel, and stars Lily James and Michiel Huisman.

So I saw this a few months back, and loved it. But when watching it a second time around for the FnF group, I had little idea how to do anything out of the ordinary for it. I ended up going with a fairly basic idea.
A potato bread. My inspiration was both the main food of potatoes, which is about all the people in the community have left to eat after the German soldiers pretty much take all the supplies; and a scene where one of the characters asks for the last slice of bread to help prove a point.
That's about all I have for you this time around, don't forget to join in next month when we are covering the Star Wars franchise and it's being hosted by Simply Inspired Meals.
Nice! I liked the slice of bread scene...and potato bread was a great idea/tie-in. I’ve gone back and forth so many times trying to decide what I want to make!ReplyDelete
Thanks. yeah, I knew I didn't want to do the obvious-obvious, but I'm sure I'm not the only one who does this for it.Delete
I actually based my recipe off of the book rather than the movie but I love this recipe inspired by that slice of bread.ReplyDelete
Thanks. I haven't had a chance to read the original book yet.Delete
What a fun recipe. Thanks so much! Potato bread?!? Never heard of that. Thanks for sharing and for joining me this month.ReplyDelete
Thanks. It was a fun one.Delete
My grandmother would always hoard a few scoops of mashed potatoes from dinners to make her potato bread. Great inspiration. Sorry it didn't turn out like you imagined. :(ReplyDelete
Thanks. It's a classic...when I'm not in the kitchen lol.Delete
