On 28th May, fellow Bond aficionado, David Lowbridge-Ellis, who runs the excellent ‘Licence to Queer‘ website, will host ‘Donate Another Day’, a day of back-to-back viewings of Pierce Brosnan’s Bond films. The event is in support of UNICEF, of which Pierce Brosnan is an ambassador (like Roger Moore before him), and David will be encouraging everyone taking part to donate to the charity.
To keep everyone refreshed, David has paired each film with a couple of cocktails devised by him and two dishes created by me. In preparing the menu, I have let my imagination run riot, having been inspired by scenes, lines, and people in the four films.
So, for GoldenEye (1995), we have ‘That’s my lunch!’ (tuna sub) and ‘Borscht for brains… with a twist’ (beetroot and caviar canapés).
For Tomorrow Never Dies (1997), you can enjoy ‘Cunning linguini’ (mussels and liguini) and ‘We dine together’ (a sharing plate of German meats and cheeses).
For The World Is Not Enough (1999), there is ‘Haggis Sophia’ (a haggis and egg recipe in honour of Sophie Marceau and the Turkish settings) and ‘Zukovsky takes a dip’ (a dipping sauce of caviar and squid ink).
Finally, for Die Another Day (2001), I have prepared ‘Death for Breakfast’ (boozy orange sorbet) and ‘Keeping your tip up’ (asparagus tips with a hollandaise-type sauce inspired by fencing instructor Verity, played by Madonna).
