Over at Turturro’s Passione screening, Grub Street managed to squeeze a little bit of food chatter out of the amazing, if chitchat-adverse, Frances McDormand. Your last home-cooked meal? “I just made meatloaf.” How do you usually prepare it? “I make it and leave it on the table for everyone.” Favorite New York restaurant?Prune.” You should play Gabrielle Hamilton in a movie! “Too old.” Take her book and produce it? “I’d consult.” Cool. “On the blood part.”
