Inspiration from

Snow White

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was America’s first feature-length animated film, as well as the first in the Disney Animated Canon. It was also the first one in English, and the first in Technicolor. It is an adaptation of the Brothers Grimm fairy tale, in which an evil queen attempts to have her stepdaughter, Snow White, murdered in jealousy of her beauty. But she escapes and is given shelter by seven dwarfs in their cottage in a forest.

Ingredients

1 tsp Chicken Seasoning
1 tsp Garlic Salt
1 tsp Pepper
0.5 tsp Ground Nutmeg
0.5 tsp Salt
4 Pork Chops
1 tbsp Butter
1 Apple, sliced
1 tbsp Vegetable Oil
150ml Chicken Stock
100ml White Wine
1 tbsp Cornflour
3 tbsp Apple Juice
Parsley (chopped)
Mash Potato (to serve)

Whilst Snow White was the first Disney movie to come, it was not one of the first Disney movies I saw. My childhood was filled with different Disney movies however we did not pick up Snow White too often. I enjoyed the movie however. The personalities of the different dwarfs is entertaining and the overall animation is interesting to learn about when looking at the history of animation.

I chose a German dish to match the location of the movie, and incorporated apples into the dish to match the themes of the film. Apple is known for blending well with pork so creating an apple sauce for the pork chops and mash potato side was a great accompaniment.
