December 26, 2016: If you are a foodie and your idea of a perfect day means curling up on sofa, watching a nice movie and having your favourite food- well, here is a perfect solution. Film industry has always been inspired by food. Hollywood has been making some great food movies since a long time. Movies like Ratatouille, Burnt, No Reservations, Chef, Julie and Julia, The Hundred-Foot journey, and much more have been appreciated worldwide.

Bollywood is not very far. We have been having a lot of food-centric movies in the past few years. Here are a few Hindi food movies we have enjoyed:

  1. Baawarchi

Light hearted comedy movie, directed by Hrishikesh Mukherjee, Bawarchi showed Rajesh Khanna, as Raghu, working as a cook for a lazy joint family. Making delicious cuisines is just one of the many talents of Raghu. He manages the household and performs the chores at a lightning speed.

The movie is a sheer novelty of actors, script as well as songs.

  1. Ramji Londonwale

This 2005 movie starred R. Madhavan and a guest appearance from none other than Amitabh Bachchan. Though the movie was released without any mega hype, the plot of the movie does all the talking. The story of how a cook from a small town in India reaches London only to find out that his boss is dead.

He makes Indian delicacies to impress his love interest. The idea of sugar-free halwa makes him very popular among the London crowd.

  1. Cheeni Kum

The R Balakrishnan directed, Cheeni Kum, portrayed the love story of a 64-year-old chef at the finest Indian Restaurant in London and a 34-year-old software engineer. The twist comes in the story when Amitabh has to impress his father-in-law.

This is the only Indian movie till date that gives you an insight to a kitchen, run by an India.  The old chef prepares delicacies to prove his worth to his father-in-law.

While looking at all the tasty dishes in the tiffins, you don’t realize the end will take you to a Dhaba where Stanley works. His condition will make you realize the importance of every single bite.

  1. Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana

The plot of the movie is how Om struggles to find the secret ingredient in his daarji’s chicken curry that made it so damn good. He needs to find this ingredient to protect his family from a crisis.

The film shows how much people can bond over a hot kadhai.

  1. English Vinglish

This movie is not just about the struggle of an Indian housewife, trying to keep up with his husband and modern kids.

Shashi’s business started gaining popularity. It was the only hope in her life where her family kept demeaning her. She finds a friend in the US who is a French chef. So, basically, the story revolved around food.

  1. The Lunchbox

The story of how a tiffin services mess up and give the Ila’s tiffin to Saajan Fernandes, instead of her husband. Ila had been trying to impress his husbands by making him delicious meals.

Saajan appreciation gives her confidence and they make a special bond over their love for food.

We, Indians, have always had a special relationship with food. We need more of such movies because the life is brightest when the food is best.

Researchers Develop New Test To Detect E.coli in Food Quickly

The kit has been approved by Health Canada and translated for commercial use

Researchers have developed a novel testing kit that can detect Escherichia coli (E.coli) — a deadly pathogen — much more quickly than existing methods.

The kit detects E. coli 0157, commonly found in ground meat, and is considered more likely to cause severe illnesses than other forms of the bacteria.

The test detects a protein unique to the pathogenic E. coli bacteria and shows results in hours rather than days.

“Our goal is to get the testing to occur as close as possible to the source,” Michael Rieder, Professor at the University of Western Ontario in Canada, said in a statement on Friday.

“This technology is not only faster, but it’s less expensive, it’s easy to use, and it can occur right in the processing plant.”

Food samples to be tested are incubated for a few hours. A sample is then placed on a pad. After 15 minutes, the pad displays one red line to show it worked properly – and a second if the sample contains E. coli O157, the CTV reported.

“It’s very much like a pregnancy test,” Rieder was quoted as saying.

Current food testing methods typically rely on culture, which requires samples to be sent away for testing, with results taking up to two weeks to come back. By that time, the food has often been shipped to markets and large recalls have to occur.

The quicker testing ensures that results are received long before contaminated products make it to the market, thus reducing the risk to the public and the need for large-scale food recalls.

“We are looking at this specific biomarker because it is unique to this pathogenic bacteria.The presence of bacteria itself isn’t bad, but we want to be able to identify specific bacteria that will cause people to get sick,” Rieder said.

“The goal is a safer food chain for everyone so that public safety can be assured.”
