October 15, 2013


M-Go, a digital entertainment service, said it is taking movie night to the next level with their new original series, "Dinner & A Download".

According to a release, starting October 10 Dinner & A Download is available at as a free series of four 15-minute segments offering viewers custom recipes, cooking demonstrations, and helpful tips from celebrity chefs that complement their favorite movie choices.

"Dinner and A Download is M-Go's way of 'eventizing' movies, to make it easier for everyone to get back into the enjoyment of entertaining at home with great movie-inspired meals," said John Batter CEO of M-Go. "We believe M-GO will become the first and last destination for all consumers' personal entertainment experiences. More than just offering great movies and TV content, we want to make things jump off the screen and into people's lives, which is where Dinner & A Download comes in."

M-Go noted that each episode, hosted by culinary personality Jeffrey Saad, of Dinner & A Download features a different celebrity chef sharing themed dishes that marry their signature cooking style with a selection of movies from M-Go's library. With themes like "Reinvention. Reimagination," "Life is Short. Eat Dessert First," "Twist" and "Man vs. Nature," the chefs provide creative recipes that will inspire viewers to get into their own kitchens before moving to their couches.

Additionally, the chefs and recipes include:

-Chef Richard Blais (author, "From My Head to Your Plate" and winner of Bravo's Top Chef All-Stars): Watch the Willy Wonka of the culinary world work his magic with Fizzy Lifting Fish Tacos and Holy Mole Chicken. His movie theme is "Reinvention. Reimagination." Featured flicks include Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Despicable Me, Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle, Moneyball, and Star Trek.

-Chef Ben Sargent (author, "The Catch" and host of Cooking Channel's Hook, Line & Dinner): Chef Sargent takes on a bevy of "Man vs. Nature" flicks with such hearty, sea-worthy fare as his signature That's How I (Lobster) Roll and Survival Chowder. Be one with nature with movies such as Cast Away, Jaws, The Perfect Storm, The Edge, and The Grey.

-Chef George Duran (author, "Take this Dish and Twist It" and host of TLC's Ultimate Cake Off): No stranger to changing things up, Chef Duran puts typical movie fare on the back burner with recipes like Macho Meatless Meatballs with Spicy Tomato Sauce and Twisted Twinkie Tiramisu. Fans will see why his movie selections -- Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Fight Club, Inception, Se7en, and Side Effects -- are all about "Surprise Twists."

-Chef Paulette Goto (contributing host of Cooking Channel's Unique Sweets): The feisty sugar fashionista and classically trained pastry chef knows "Life is Short. Eat Dessert First." Which is exactly why she's got two desserts with her Pig Candy Waffles and Dessert-First Fontaine. One look at her movie inspirations -- Bridesmaids, The Devil Wears Prada, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Footloose, Silver Linings Playbook -- and it's easy to understand why these recipes are anything but apologetic.

-Chef Jeffrey Saad (author, "Jeffrey Saad's Global Kitchen: Recipes Without Borders" and host of Cooking Channel's United Tastes of America): Jeffrey Saad brings his culinary knowledge and his love of entertainment to his role as host of M-GO's Dinner & A Download. In each episode, Jeffrey helps the viewer learn how to make the celebrity chef's delicious dishes and how they can enjoy the corresponding movies!

Dinner & A Download features episodes that are accompanied by the recipes as free digital downloads. All users have to pay for is the movie they want to watch along with the meal they prepare. Whether ordering a chick flick for a girls' night in or a family-friendly film for the kids,
