10 Movies That Inspire Wanderlust… With Snack Pairings Slideshow

Slide 1 of 10
Vicky Cristina Barcelona

Woody Allen’s first love is New York, but Vicky Cristina Barcelona is set in Spain and will make you want to listen to acoustic Spanish guitar on repeat. Vicky (Rebecca Hall) is in Barcelona to study Gaudí’s architecture and takes us on a tour of the wildly romantic and gothic city. Once they board the bumpy plane ride from Barcelona to Oviedo, you can tell the adventure will be a beautiful and fruitful one. Vicky and Juan Antonio (Javier Bardem) explore the town and his father’s rustic home together, while Cristina is sick and bedridden in a grand, classic old hotel. Broken down on a map, this film would be a perfect Catalan itinerary.


What to serve? Snacks like marcona almonds, manchego cheese, and pan con tomate will get you and your fellow viewers in the mood. For a larger meal, try making this Oven Paella with Chicken, Shrimp, and Chorizo. Go with a bottle of chilled Albariño.
