Do you remember the scene in the movie “Elf” when Buddy makes the spaghetti with like a pile of candy and syrup on top? If you ever wanted to make it yourself, you're in luck.

It’s one of the many recipes from the movies in a new cookbook called “Scrounging” from indie film studio A24. Editor Margaret Rhodes calls it a collection of late-night, last-ditch recipes and ingenious meals from the movies.

Rhodes spoke more about the book with The Show.
