1. Eat, Drink, Man, Woman
2. Babette’s Feast
3. Mostly Martha
4. Big Night
5. Estomango – crazy film, love the twist in plot and won’t give it away. Highly recommend it
6. Tampopo – my all time favourite, film on ramen, how can u go wrong
7. 9 1/2 weeks – who could forget that sexy blind fold scene by the fridge.
8. Jiro dreams of sushi
9. King of Pastry — the MOF medal, trials and tribulations of becoming an amazing pastry chef
10. Scent of Green papaya — a scene on how that salad we all love is made.

These are in no particular order and there are definitely so many more films with great food scenes.

    I just watched The Cook, The Theif, His Wife and Her Lover; it involved cooking a corpse! Macabre! Sad thing was that apparently the food was done by a chef George Locatelli, but they never showed a picture of the food he made. 三枪拍案惊奇 (the zhangyimou remake) was much much better.
