Food Thing

Obatzda at Ratschiller's Bakery and SB Cafe in Munich, Germany

If there's one thing better than cheese, it's butter. So it's safe to say obatzda, a Bavarian specialty, boasts the best mix of ingredients known to man: two thirds soft cheese, one third butter. Served with pretzels, the dish typically features aged Camembert, plus ingredients like paprika, horseradish and (how very German) beer.

Find it throughout Germany; the version at Ratschiller's Bakery and SB Cafe is particularly sublime.

Movie/TV Trivia

Into The Woods

At a Q&A session after screening of the film, James Corden recalled an incident during rehearsals in which Meryl Streep jumped on a table and her foot got caught in her costume. She started falling backwards, head first, toward a concrete floor. Both Corden and director Rob Marshall froze in the fear that they were about to witness the death of Meryl Streep. However, a pregnant Emily Blunt stepped in and caught Streep before she hit the floor.
