LOS ANGELES -- Movie lovers will immerse themselves in the flavors of Italy, India and Indonesia - the countries author Liz Gilbert visits during her journey of self-discovery - with Gold Class Cinemas' exclusive event and menu offerings for the release of "Eat Pray Love." Beginning August 13, movie fans can transform their movie going experience with the Gold Class Cinemas "Eat Pray Love" menu and cooking demonstration.
On Wednesday, August 18, each Gold Class Cinemas location will feature a live cooking demonstration from the theatre's in-house chef for up to 40 guests starring flavorful treats from the regions of Italy, India and Indonesia. This special event also includes selection of either Pizza Margarita or Curried Chicken Salad from the "Eat Pray Love"-inspired menu, with Basil Fruit Salad for dessert.
"Like 'Eat Pray Love,' Gold Class Cinemas is all about escapism and fantastic life experiences," said Mark Mulcahy, vice president, marketing, Gold Class Cinemas. "Because food plays such an important part of both the movie, and a night at Gold Class Cinemas, we combined the two for the ultimate girls' night out."
Exclusive Flavorful Menu Items
During August, guests at Gold Class Cinemas can journey to each country through an amuse-bouche plate and select menu items, created by Gold Class Cinemas' top chefs. Each guest gets the opportunity to take their own exploration with the main character through each country. The Amuse Platter includes:
* Capresse Skewer inspired by Italy: Grape tomato, fresh mozzarella and basil drizzled with olive oil.
* Masala Chicken Salad inspired by India: Roasted chicken mixed with celery, onions, golden raisins, cilantro, and a tangy curried yogurt dressing, served with grilled flat bread.
* Bali Fruit Salad inspired by Indonesia: Diced mango, papaya, pineapple, banana, chiffanade of Thai basil and mint, and Tahitian vanilla syrup, garnished with coconut crisp.
The in-cinema menu includes the Basil Fruit Salad, along with Pizza Margarita, a hand-pulled pizza dough topped with tomato, fresh mozzarella and hand-torn basil, and the Curried Chicken Salad - a roasted chicken mixed with celery, onions, golden raisins, cilantro and a tangy curried yogurt dressing, served with dressed greens and grilled flat bread.
"Our exclusive Amuse Platter is a trio of tastes that envelopes our members with the passion, experience and ultimately love that is reflected in the movie," added Mulcahy. "Along with the appetizer offering, our special menu items like the Pizza Margarita and Masala Chicken Salad truly make movie-going the ultimate fan experience."
