In the ‘Soup’

Chips, salsas leave guests unsatisfied

The only place in Hollywood one could go Tuesday night to see a pair of chefs sauntering down the red carpet, discussing creative control over a script, was the preem of Samuel Goldwyn Films’ “Tortilla Soup.”

“The food was a huge star in this film,” explained the pic’s food consultant, chef Mary Sue Milliken. Ironically, after watching the intensive preparation of gourmet Mexican food for 90 minutes, the tortilla chips and variety of salsas at the after-party in the DGA lobby were sadly unsatisfying.

Co-screenwriter Vera Blasi affirmed the cinematic importance of food: “I think there’s a metaphor between cooking and the transformation of a character, since in the process of cooking this alchemy takes place, and so it is with the characters.”

Among those on hand at the fiesta were exec producer Samuel Goldwyn Jr.; pic’s Hector Elizondo, Jacqueline Obradors, Tamara Mello, Paul Rodriguez, Elizabeth Pena, Raquel Welch, Constance Marie, Julio Oscar Mechoso and Marisabel Garcia.
