With only two screenings left, the Miners Foundry Cultural Center and Nevada City Film Festival will wrap up the 2012 season of their monthly Food & Film Series with the 1934 classic comedy-mystery, The Thin Man, Friday, November 16 and the holiday slapstick comedy National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, Saturday, December 15.
Friday, November 16, the Food & Film Series screens The Thin Man directed by W.S. Van Dyke, and based on the novel of the same name by Dashiell Hammett, the film stars William Powell and Myrna Loy as Nick and Nora Charles. Nick is a hard-drinking, retired private detective, and Nora a wealthy heiress. Nick Charles (Powell), a retired detective, and his wife Nora (Loy) are attempting to settle down when he’s pulled back into service by a friend’s disappearance and possible involvement in a murder. The murderer is finally revealed in a classic dinner-party scene that features all of the suspects.
Renowned Chef Willem DeGroot of The Truffle Shop in Nevada City will complement the cocktail party theme with an array of decadent truffles and tortes. All truffles are created with an imported Belgian chocolate and not only taste amazing they are small works of art. Truffle Tortes contain two layers of a rich truffle filling (ganache) layered with dark chocolate cake, covered in a smooth chocolate glaze, and topped with the appropriate decoration. Truffle Tortes are available in Cafe Mocha, Raspberry and Hazelnut. Chef Willem DeGroot’s products have been sent to the White House, the Vatican, and other discriminating customers around the world. The Truffle Shop will also be serving their famous Nevada City Ice Cap.
