Big Night (1996) is one of the most prominent culinary films in existence. In the film, we meet two Italian brothers who settle in New Jersey in the 50's and open an Italian restaurant to chase the American dream. Big Night has been credited with revolutionizing American restaurant culture with its focus on authentic Italian food.
During the film screening, the chefs at Alma's will dish up a selection of the dishes you see in the film, inspired by the Italian cuisine that the film's main characters value so highly.
The menu this evening will consist of shellfish risotto with mascarpone, parsley and lemon, oven-baked pasta with tomato, beef, basil and parmesan, and vanilla panna cotta with biscotti and berries.
