Like Water for Chocolate

Like Water for Chocolate

For our spring installment of Food and Film, we’re screening 1992’s beloved magical realism masterpiece Like Water for Chocolate. Director Alfonso Arau’s gorgeous adaptation of Laura Esqquivel’s novel runs deep with themes of forbidden love, insatiable appetites and so many deeply soulful Mexican recipes.

After the screening we’ll be hosting a VIP After Party inspired by the glorious dishes featured in the film (VIP tickets are $52 general admission, and $47 for members). The celebration kicks off at 8:30 p.m. and VIP admission includes a ticket to the screening, a welcome drink and a line up of small plates and Mexican wines pulled from the scenes of Like Water For Chocolate at Vivienne Culinary Books’ new location at 2724 NE Alberta Street. Additional wine by the glass will be available for purchase along with a private shopping event, 15% all new books. We are not able to accommodate dietary restrictions for this event.
