Your favorite food movie?

  • m

Just watched Julie and Julia last night with my oldest son. Meryl Streep, as always, was amazing, but I was disappointed in the secondary plot. (Nora Ephron's characters always seem unsympathetic to me.)

One thing that was missing, IMO, was a real love of food. I didn't come away wanting to cook something, like I do when I watch Lidia Bastianich or Jacques Pepin.

Movies about cooking, should make you hungry, don't you think?

If we were building a shelf of foodie movies, what would you suggest?

      This is a very popular topic. There are loads of replies on these two posts, perhaps others, BUT----

            I agree! Like Water For Chocolate is not only a great food movie, but a great movie...inventive, sensual, mystical and edible!

          2. My favorite is Babette's Feast-
            next is Like water for Chocolate-I enoyed reading the book as well.

              Babette's Feast.

              What a sophisticated tale.

              No Supermarkets in those days.

              A delight to watch:
