    Movies with a FOOD theme?

    Movies with a FOOD theme?



    I love watching movies that are centered around food. Here are a few of my favorites:

    Babette's Feast--a Danish film about a woman who becomes a cook/housekeeper for two spinster, elderly sisters; it culminates in an elaborate meal that Babette prepares for her employers. It's a wonderful, mouth watering feast for the eyes!

    Eat Drink Man Woman--a retired Chinese chef cooks these delicious meals for his three daughters. It's quite heart warming, funny, and yummy to watch!

    and one I just saw the other night for all you sushi lovers:

    Jiro Dreams of Sushi--a documentary about the most famous sushi chef in Tokyo who is in his 80's but still very active as a sushi chef.

    Anyone else have some faves?

    Sorry... That was hilarious, though! :blush3:

    One scene in "When Harry Met Sally" is about all I can come up with -- maybe it is too late in the day and I am all Thinked Out?

    Lisa, I saw Animal House like maybe...20years ago!! hehe...i cannot remember that scene. At first i thought you meant ZITI,as in the pasta...but you meant Zit...like acne??

    How about Like Water For Chocolate? Anyone see that one? I didn't but it was centered around...duh...chocolate!

    Funny but all the movies i've mentioned are foreign films.

    I sadly don't watch movies often. We have had some saved in TiVo that have been there for many months. All that comes to mind is apple pie from American pie I think it's called. not a visual that makes me hungry tho. Omg!

    I saw it when I was probably far too young to watch it LOL

    Here is the scene, I bet you will remember it after seeing it again!
