Yummy Movies

Have you seen these food movies? Thanks to Chef JJ for this link. It's a great list! I have Spanglish, and Eat Drink Man Woman but haven't seen the latter. I saw Big Night on TV a long time ago & dreamed of making a timballo myself. Am eagerly awaiting No Reservations. You've all seen Ratatouille of course? Di kasama Chocolat dito sa list? I really liked that :-) The Mistress of Spices didn't have any cooking but I loved the spices. Know any more food movies?

Hello!

I know Sarah Michelle Gellar has a food themed movie, its called Simply Irresistible, but its not really serious cooking, more of magical cooking. She has a magical crab! Hehe!

I also know of a series centered on cooking, called Kitchen Confidential.
Have a good day! :)

Woman on Top, and...err... Simply Irresistble? (Not the best movie ever, but hey, it's a feel good movie. So there.) Does Charlie and the Chocolate Factory count? Hehe.

Woman on Top? Simply Irresistable is a food movie, too. (A bit shallow, yeah, but hey, it's a feel good movie, so there.)

Does Charlie and the Chocolate Factory count? Haha!

At first what I had in mind were films with serious cooking going on. But yeah there are lotsa movies that have food as a central theme. Woman On Top was fun. "Share it with someone you love." Ok heto na lang, what movies made you wanna eat or cook or both right after the film even though it was in the middle of the night? Hehe.

@Sa
I just reread what I wrote...difficult for me because I ALWAYS want to cook & eat even in the middle of the night, don't I? Hehehe.

@Jigs
Kitchen Confidential! Anthony Bourdain...astig! Haven't seen it. Saan ka nakahanap? Been drooling over the book at Fully Booked but haven't gotten it. That leads me to my next post, Yummy Books. Hmmm.

Like Water For Chocolate? That had serious cooking in it. Or was that in the list?
