My favourite food movies

I have always loved films about food or with a food theme. They seem to tell a story about life through the cooking and preparing food. Thought I would list my favourites (in no particular order). I know I am missing some good films so send me a comment on your favourites. I am including films that a friend that works in video told me about so if I haven’t seen it, it comes under the second section of film suggested but not seen yet…..

  1. Hi Cindy, I saw Secret of the Grain and loved it. I never realized how many movies I watched that were food based. I saw every one of your ‘viewed’ list. Yummy.

    • It’s funny isn’t it – I started the list and realized how many films I had seen that had some sort of food theme to them. I will rent Secret of the Grain from my new favourite movie source – The Library!

  2. Thanks a lot for visiting my blog and for liking some of my posts. I find your blog amazing and I am following you now. I shall watch these movies. 🙂
