Movie Food

Who doesn’t love movies, and who doesn’t love food? Over the course of a couple of posts, I’m going to be looking at certain scenes from movies involving food, that have stayed in my mind. The visual impact of movies in regards to eating, pleasure, and the emotional significance of certain meals and foods, is so compelling and sometimes overlooked. The presence of food and eating in movies is often so seemingly innocuous we tend to pass it over. Thinking about it, I was surprised at all the examples of great “food movies” that came to my mind.
