Film to Table


There’s nothing better than watching a good movie, except maybe a good movie that features some good-looking food. But fans have only been able to imagine how these dishes would taste — until now, as Lexus is launching a new show on its digital content channel L/Studio called “Film to Table.” Each episode features chef and TV personality Jason Roberts sets out to recreate some of the most famous dishes in film history.

The seven-episode series will recreate meals from such films like “Goodfellas,” “Eat Pray Love,” and “Pulp Fiction,” with the first episode focusing on a ramen dish from the Japanese film “Tampopo.” Fandor’s Haroon Adalat provides cinematic insight as he assists Roberts in cooking up the meal, covering topics such as the film’s Western influences.

The short six minute episode is quite entertaining, while also providing insight on how to make a great ramen dish — and a hilarious note as Roberts attempts to coax Adalat into recreating the film’s iconic egg yoke scene with him. You can watch the full episode below.
