According to this report by Times of India, Independent Filmmaker Grace Lee has shown interest in making a movie on Odia Food. Award winning independent filmmaker Grace Lee was in the city to screen her film ‘Off the menu: Asian America’ in several parts in Odisha as part of the American Film Showcase (AFS) conducted by US Consulate General, Hyderabad.
“I liked Odia food very much. I had different kinds of Indian food but some of the foods I tasted in Odisha are very unique like the powder (badi chura), and shrimp (Chingudi checha) and fish with mustard gravy, I never had. In US when we go to any Indian restaurant they don’t serve these typical foods. I heard a lot about the temple food of Odisha. It would be a great opportunity if I could make a film on Odia food,” said Grace Lee.
