More Favorite Food Scenes from Movies

In the last issue of our newsletter we celebrated some of our favorite movies scenes involving food.  We invited our readers to contribute to the list, and many of you replied.

Our Readers at the Movies

Roger Meyer from Georgia reminded us of one of our favorite movies, “Tom Jones.”  Roger captures the movie well:  “One cannot forget the 1963 movie “Tom Jones” in which Tom, played hilariously by Albert Finney at age 26 is a rascal of the highest (or lowest) order.   He attempts to seduce an older woman in a tavern over a plate of food such as oysters and lobster.  The acting, photography, and dialogue are spot on.”

We are glad are guests have shared their favorite food scenes from movies with us.

Many of our favorite movies have food scenes.

Roger also reminds us of the 2015 movie “Chef” which we have only seen recently.  In the film Jon Favreau leaves his top shelf job as a chef de cuisine to start a food truck.  “The food scenes, especially when he begins to cook for the food truck, will make you salivate and leave the movie theater dying for some good ethnic food.”  We agree!

And who can forget “Tortilla Soup” from 2001.  Hector Elizondo invites his daughters home to dine with him every Sunday.  They discuss everything about life and love over these meals.  Raquel Welch plays a widow trying to become a love interest of Elizondo.  The food scenes look delicious.  As Roger says, “You won’t need popcorn with this movie, the food scenes will sate you!”

Several readers mentioned “Goodfellas” from 1990.  They called to mind the dinner scene in prison.  Remember the garlic sliced so thin with a razor blade that it would “liquefy in the pan with just a little oil”?

A member of our own team chided us gently for not including “Leave the gun, take the cannoli” from “The Godfather”.   This team member also referenced 1967’s “Cool Hand Luke” where Paul Newman earned the respect of his fellow inmates by eating 50 hardboiled eggs.  In the words of one prisoner, his stomach was so swollen “like a ripe watermelon that’s about to bust itself open”.

We have plenty more scenes that you have submitted–keep watching this space for more!
