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?
