The Dissolve

A playground for movie lovers

100 notes

“When I first moved to Chicago and went to college, I was really, really homesick, and I walked into a Vietnamese restaurant, and suddenly the smells… I almost started crying, because it reminded me of home. It’s so funny how food can just trigger memories. Just walking into the space, and hearing people talk, and smelling the things… It evoked all these feelings. So when I saw that movie, it just reminded me, no matter how much you try to run away or forget, there are always going to be things that tie you back to the things you love most. That’s what pho represents to me, too.”

In Perfect Pairing, we interview chefs about a longtime favorite movie and the perfect dish they’d make to accompany a viewing. Chef Amy Le shares her recipe for pho, a memory-evoking complement to Michel Gondry’s Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind.
