I had a group project dealing with the Black Panther Party that I found very interesting and would like to share. The image lasting into modern times of the Black Panther Party is that of a violent and extremist political-social group. Certainly, many members did have...

So the scene where the food critic eats ratatouille and remembers his mom's cooking is a great scene. It captures my feelings on cooking perfectly. I've been learning to cook ever since I moved out of a dorm into an apartment. I watch cooking videos and chef interviews...
