Peach and Berry Cobbler for a Movie Inspired #SundaySupper

Apr 14, 2013 by

Today’s #SundaySupper is so cool! We are all doing a post inspired by a special or favourite movie. Have you been able to think of a food or beverage and immediately connect it to a movie? You know, like how Carrie has her special Cosmopolitan and Bond has his Martini “shaken, not stirred.” You get the idea. Our host today is none other than Heather from GirliChef! Check out Heather’s awesome recipes on her blog.

I chose the movie Soul Food. I loved the movie so naturally, I loved the series too. I watched every single episode. I laughed. I cried. I crushed. Yes, Boris Kodjoe is the ish! I’m over him now, but back then….just looking at him made my day. I loved the series so much that I jumped at the chance to be an extra in one of the episodes. That’s right. I was on set for about 12 hours, mostly doing nothing – but I was there. It’s too bad I have no idea what season or episode it was. Ha! Ah well.

In the movie, I loved that every Sunday the family got together and had a big meal that everyone would enjoy. It was a time to catch up, work out issues, and share joys. You see, I believe I loved it because the values portrayed in the movie were similar to mine. The focus, aside from all the drama and family bickering, was always on family and bringing them back together after tremendous turmoil. Family first. I love a good drama. If you haven’t seen Soul Food (1997), it’s definitely an oldie but goodie.

It’s too  bad that the idea of Soul Food generally means something deep fried, sugar filled or unhealthy but incredibly tasty. Today I’m sharing a recipe that is a cleaner version of a Soul Food dessert. I wanted to try it because 1. I have never made a cobbler before and 2. I’m coming off a juice fast and I need a sweet treat that won’t throw me off my goal. I love that there are fruits and that the cake is made with spelt flour. Totally my kind of dessert!

  1. wow does your cobbler look delicious! Great choice for this week’s theme, Lyn!

  2. Ohh Cobbler!
    Soul Food and deep south cooking are just kissing cousins. 99.999% of the time we had some sort of cobbler for dessert most nights when we were all growing up. The healthier biscuity twist is a refreshing change. Although – any diet can be improved with a little sweetness, fluffy, buttery biscuit cobblering going on!

  3. Lyn, this is one lovely looking cobbler. I love the topping!

  4. You know you stole my Southern heart with a cobbler! It’s so nice that it’s a bit healthier than the regular versions. Now I just have to wait for peach season to arrive and make this with fresh-picked Georgia peaches.

  5. omg Lyn I am all hooked for your fruity cobbler! Soul food, I don’t think so I know the movie but I am IMDBing it right now and if you love it I should enjoy it as well. There are 2 versions a newer and older? which one is better?

  6. I think cobblers are underappreciated! This looks awesome – now if spring would show up so that we could have fresh fruit I’d be in business lol.

  7. How cool that you were an extra..I’d be diggin’ up all the old episodes and combing them for a glimpse of myself 😉 (I didn’t even realize they’d made a tv series out of it!) I haven’t seen Soul Food in years, but I do remember liking it. You’ve inspired me to watch it again soon…preferably with a big, warm scoop of this delicious cobbler.

    • Heather, I thought about buying the box sets but who has the money for that? LOL then I would have to watch every episode to see if I’m actually in it. I found out from the last movie I was an extra in, that scenes can be omitted from the final production. At least I was in the deleted scenes that are on the offical DVD 😉
      I hope you get to watch it again, Heather. Good movie.

  16. I love fruit based desserts. They are infinitely healthier than the odd brownie, right? Congrats on completing your juice fast! How do you feel after it? I’ve been thinking about getting into it but don’t know how it will make me feel especially since I work full time and have to cook for my hubs and all.

  20. I am licking my screen, because the cobbler looks that good. I wish I had that magic baking touch, so I could make this awesome recipe a reality. I might give it a shot over the weekend. Nothing tried, nothing gained.
