The Food of Pedro Almadóvar's Volver


"If there were an Oscar for "best use of food in a film," Pedro Almodóvar's "Volver" would surely win at the awards ceremony Sunday," says Beverly Levitt of the Boston Globe, in her feature on the culture of food in the movie. If you've seen Volver, Levitt includes recipes for dishes that appeared in the movie, both favorites from Almadóvar's childhood: tortilla espanola and pisto manchego.
