Yesterday I enjoyed watching Mostly Martha, a film about a woman chef who finds she has to care for her niece, after the loss of the girl's mother, the chef's sister. Also tells the story of this woman's love of cooking and what transpires in a restaurant in Germany. It's a very good film. I don't want to spoil the story for you all. Watch and enjoy! In German with English sub-titles.
