Movie Pairing: My Life As A Zucchini (Netflix)
“My Life As A Zucchini, or Ma Vie De Courgette, is a Swiss/French stop-motion film that will make you sob (I sure did). It’s about a boy named Zucchini who goes from an abusive home to an orphanage, and ends up forming close bonds with the other kids there. The story is equal parts sad and sweet, and will make you want to curl up in a huge blanket with a big plate of warm food from Brenda’s in Oakland. My plate of choice is their crispy, juicy fried chicken, a side of collard greens with bacon, and their super-rich chocolate beignets for dessert.” - JC

Brenda’s French Soul Food has officially expanded into Oakland. The new restaurant has a menu of the same fried chicken, grillades, and beignets we love from their other locations, and is open for breakfast and dinner.
