Food and cinema are two worlds that can offer unique and indescribable experiences. One of the people that were able to understand the meaning of all this was Hayao Miyazaki, who’s managed to lure in children and adults with his stories. And if there’s something that is always present in Miyazaki’s films is the relationship between food and the characters.
