Blueberry Pancakes from Pulp Fiction

Believe it or not, but I watched “Pulp Fiction” only a couple of months ago, even if I am quite fond of Quentin Tarantino. Not sure, whether it is true, but Tarantino on a question “Why haven’t you made anything better than Pulp Fiction?” is said to answer “And who did?” Indeed, several narrative threads of the movie are intertwined in the most unpredictable way, so that one may need a cheatsheet Pulp Fiction in Chronological Order, not need to mention that the film is brilliantly witty. Anyway, I guess it does not need a long introduction.

I saw Pulp Fiction when the idea of cooking dishes featured in popular movies already came to my head. Well, there is hardly any food explicitly shown in the movie (apart from the pretty amazing $5 milkshake), however, one episode caught my attention: 

I shall agree: blueberry pancakes for a breakfast is a real threat! Plus, actually, they are fast and not difficult at all to prepare.
