Nourishing Oscar Dishes

OK, we decided to play along with Oscar fever. Here’s how we match nourishing dishes to this year’s Best Picture nominees. Who are you rooting for?

1. “127 Hours”: Noemi’s Remixed Party Mix. A perfect snack for when you’re between a rock and a hard place.

2. “The Black Swan”: Crispy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies. Because psycho ballerinas like to binge.

3. “Winter’s Bone”: Skillet Corn Bread with Tomatoes and Sage. Down-home comfort food for down-home drama.

4. “Toy Story 3”: Crispy Buttermilk Oven-Fried Chicken. A kid-friendly classic you’ll never outgrow…

5. “The Fighter”: Barramundi with Shallots and Chile. A ready-in-a-hurry post-workout meal when you’re training for the fight of your life!

6. “Inception”: Carnitas de Lia. ‘Cause this dish is so dreamy…

7. “The Kids Are All Right”: Braised Kale and Feta Tartines. Local, organic food plays a big role in this flick & we think the characters would dig this super-flavorful open-faced s’wich.

8. “True Grit”: Spice-Rubbed Skirt Steak. Rooster Cogburn would approve of this grub! (I’m rooting for this one to win Best Picture. What’s your fave?)

9. “The King’s Speech”: Meyer Lemon Ricotta Scones, with Kitchen MacGyver Lemon Curd. Our spin on two veddy British classics.

10. The Social Network”: No-Bake Peanut Butter Popcorn Treats. The perfect munchies for an all-night coding session.

And the Oscar goes to….
