To celebrate the release of the stop-motion animated film Isle of Dogs in cinema’s ( It was the opening film of the 68th Berlin International Film Festival) today, I thought why not give a recipe that both you and your four-legged friends can share! Curious about this movie? Here is the synopsis:
In a dystopian future Japan, dogs have been quarantined on a remote island due to a “canine flu”. A boy, Atari, ventures to the island to find his dog, Spots. Other dogs—Chief, Rex, Boss, Duke, and King—help him search for Spots and evade the authorities.
