The moment we've all been waiting for more than a year has finally arrived. It's time to see the queen, Emma Watson, genius, Hermione Granger, become the best Disney princess there ever was, Belle. Beauty and the Beast is finally on the big screen, so make sure to celebrate this iconic moment by making the following foods.
1. Beef Ragu
The first food Belle samples in the iconic "Be Our Guest" scene — try some beef ragu over pasta to really immerse yourself in the movie.
2. Cheese Soufflé
The French love their cheeses, so make sure you make some cheese soufflé and settle in for a night of movie watching.
3. Pie and Pudding (en flambé)
"En flambé" means to cover in liquor and light it up, so I wouldn't recommend doing this one in the movie theater.
5. Gray Stuff
Apparently it's delicious, and we agree. Looks aren't everything.
Porridge is the food that the Beast finally learns how to use a spoon (and some manners). Awwww.
7. Hors d'Ouvres
In Be Our Guest, Lumber shows Belle a tray filled with hors d'Ouvres, including some crescent wrapped sausages and some mini sandwiches. I'm hoping those mini sandwiches are made with some delicate french brie.
"There goes the baker with his tray, like always" — probably has some fresh baguettes on them. Pair them with the next item on this list for the ultimate movie watching snack.
9. Deli Meat
When going into town, Belle strolls by the deli store. Get an assortment of deli meats (salami, pastrami, you name it) and pair them with cheese and a big glass of wine.
10. Mexican Food
Emma Watson's favorite food is Mexican, so honor her by making some good guac and queso.
11. Polyjuice Potion
Make a toast to Emma Watson's Harry Potter roots by making this magical potion — it might even turn the beast back into a prince.
Technically not food, but they are a staple of the movie. With the dancing champagne in "Be Our Guest" and the all the beer in "Gaston," these two are absolutely necessary for a Beauty and the Beast celebration.
Last but not least, I think Mrs. Potts and Chip would appreciate some tea at your Beauty and the Beast celebration — after all, they're important characters to the movie, too.
