Episode 75 - Rob Firing This Movie's About You

    • TV & Film

I know plenty of people who think of themselves as steak connoisseurs, but I know only one person who actually is a steak connoisseur. Rob Firing knows his steaks - he also knows the literary world in both capacities as an author and an agent. Rob’s latest book, Steak Revolution, is a beautiful, photographed (most of the pics are Rob’s), hard cover cook book celebrating the fine art of cooking steak. So, it’s of little surprise, at least to me, that one of Rob’s movie choices is an independent gem about the culinary arts. His second film (and I’m purposefully leaving out the titles in hopes you’ll be curious enough to listen in) is a wonderful French thriller, of sorts, that dates back to when Rob was in his early teens dropping in on the UofT student film screenings. The films lead us seamlessly through a conversation about restaurant etiquette, high-school cliques, being different, and really good steaks. I suggest you listen to this one during lunch.
