New arrivals for the week of March 10, 2015
Ask Me Anything
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1
Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb
White Haired Witch

Greetings everyone,

It's a pretty slim week for new releases but there are still a few worth mentioning: "Ask Me Anything" (w/Britt Robertson, Justin Long, Christian Slater and Martin Sheen), "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1" (w/Jennifer Lawrence, Willow Shields, Elizabeth Banks, Josh Hutcherson, etc), "Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb" (w/Ben Stiller, Ben Kingsley, Ricky Gervais, Robin Williams, etc) and "White Haired Witch" (w/Fan Bingbing, Huang Xiaoming and Vincent Chiu). We also picked up both seasons of the PBS show "A Chef's Life" which follows Chef Vivian Howard as she opens and runs an upscale restaurant in Eastern North Carolina. In each episode she introduces us to all of the farmers and people who supply her with fresh ingredients. And, for those of you who love international mysteries TV stuff, we've started a new category aptly named The International Mystery Series Section. So far it only has the releases from the awesome MHz Networks label but we'll be adding more over the next few weeks. You can check out all of this week's new arrivals below.

The Top Renter in our Cooking, Drinking & Nutrition section is "Slow Food Story" all about the history of the Carlo Petrini's Slow Food movement, sustainable agriculture and putting the fun back into eating. Next up is the documentary "Somm", which follows four sommeliers attempting to pass the prestigious Master Sommelier exam. And, beer is represented in the third position -- "The American Brew" takes us through the history of beer in America. The rest of the list is the usual mix of America's Test Kitchen (and their sister show/publication, Cook's Country), Anthony Bourdain, a few wine/beer shows (including Zane Lamprey's highly-enjoyable "Drinking Made Easy") and most seasons of my favorite, "The Mind of a Chef". For more films about food, check out the Food Films section of our Pocket Pal. We've got a great selection of Cooking, Drinking & Nutrition Shows -- here are the ones that rented this past year:

2 SOMM
3 AMERICAN BREW, THE
