In honer of Ratatouille opening up, I would like to mention a few lesser known Food Movie. Since we have all seen, or at leash should see, The Big Night, Like water for Chocolate, Babbets Feast and Mostly Martha; here are a few of my other favorites:
Dinner Rush - Mobsters, Chefs, romance and Cranky art critics - this movie rocks! I love the scene when one of the cooks is fired for messing with the Chef's mis en place.
The Cook, the Thief, his Wife and her Lover - I guess because it is not out on DVD a lot of people don't know about this darkly humorous tale. It is worth seeking out.
Good-Fellows - Does this count as a food movie? They sure do eat a lot.
Does any one else have some lesser known Food Movie Gems? What are your favorite or not so favorite?
What a fun topic! Movies and food are two of my favorite things!
Not technically a food movie, but I adore Moonstruck. It's so full of life. I like to watch it and eat an Italian meal.I also love a glass of champagne with a sugar cube in it - although I put a drop of Angostura bitters on the sugar cube and add a lemon twist which they don't do in the movie.
Oh, how about Big Night? Now there's a dinner movie!
I'm a little embarrassed to say that the totally formulaic and cheesy, (appropriate label for a food movie) The Last Holiday was fun. Queen Latifa was trained in her technique at the Food Network.
