Cooking Movies & Shows Worth Watching

Movies and documentaries about food are where real character development takes root. Try “Jiro Dreams of Sushi,” about an 85-year-old sushi master who runs a world-class restaurant in a subway station, or “For Grace,” about the challenges one man faces on his way to becoming one of the most lauded American chefs. “Big Night” is about a dinner party to top all dinner parties, starring the inimitable Stanley Tucci; “Babette’s Feast” is a slow-moving and intense look at life in a stoic setting (if you don’t speak Danish, read the subtitles).

Young Bluffton Chef Featured on ‘Chopped Junior’

Bluffton resident and River Ridge Academy student Aiden McCarthy, 12, competed in the Feb. 21 episode of Food Network's "Chopped Junior." Aiden was one of 14,000 kids who applied to be on the show, which was taped in October. Culinary skills run in Aiden's family — he’s the son of Leah and Ryan McCarthy, owners of the Downtown Deli, a food truck and catering company, and Aiden learned to cook in those kitchens.
