It's The Life of Pi after Thanksgiving Pie

What does one do after a fabulous Thanksgiving dinner? Well, everyone on staff at Your Culinary World is going to see the just released movie hailed as the new Avatar - The Life of Pi.

Directed in 3D (and digital) by Ang Lee, who also created the visually stunning Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and thought provoking Brokeback Mountain, The Life of Pi has been hailed by early reviewers as a masterpiece.

Based on an award winning book by Yann Martel, the story superficially tells the tale a boy shipwrecked in a small rowboat with a tiger. But the story is about much much more than that. It is also a story about fear, division, courage and the power to understand the heart of Life itself - themes the author often seeks to write about.

Make time this holiday to see a movie you will long remember -it's one great present you can give yourself and your staff. No gift wrapping required!

Post Note, November 30, 2012: If by now you have seen The Life of Pi (which we hope you have as the film is truly amazing), why not celebrate a great movie with a piece of Tiger Cake in honor of Richard Parker himself.

(Just adjust the colors and you can also make a Zebra Cake - if you've seen the film...poor zebra).

Make It a Memorable Christmas with a Gift of English Royal Wedding China

England’s long anticipated next royal wedding is set for April 29th in 2011 but the commemorative wedding china was released today, just in time for last minute Christmas shopping.  And it's beautiful!

Prince William and his lovely bride-to-be Kate Middleton selected their elegant design earlier this month while at the Royal Collection located in Stoke-on-Trent.  

Each piece is made of fine white bone china accented with the entwined initials of the Prince and his future princess in gold and silver.

The charming commemorative china is now available for purchase from the gift shops at the various royal residencies.  It's a perfect Christmas gift.

All the resulting revenue will go towards the cost of this sure to be much watched wedding and the upkeep of the Royal Collection itself.

With a bride on his arm as beautiful as the beloved Princess Diana, one can only wish the young prince and his sweet lady many happy years together.
