"I simply love this German movie about a high strung chef (Martina Gedneck)who can only express her affections through exquisitely prepared food. The perfectly photographed viands are practically pornographic and the supporting cast of wonderful actors make the subplots almost as interesting as the charming main story."
"An Isak Dinesen's story becomes a gorgeous Danish movie which recognizes that great cooking is a God-given talent. This Academy Award winner will win your heart and soul and make you salivate over a menu that includes fresh terrapin soup, quail in vol-au-vents, blinis, caviar and baba au rhum."
"This delicious Mexican film concerns love, tradition, passion, communication, and food. There is a presence and influence of magic and mysticism throughout the entire film connected with the allegory of food. The screenplay was adapted from s Laura Esquivel book. If you are curious about the food check out the book as it has the most amazing recipes!"
"In this humorous "noodle western" about the joys of food, the main story is about trucker Goro (the fabulous Ken Watanabe) who rides into town like a modern Shane to help the widowed Tampopo set up the perfect Ramen noodle restaurant. Woven into this main story are a number of smaller stories about the importance of food and of making the perfect broth!"
"This delightful, Academy Award nominated Norwegian movie serves up humor and human frailty in generous proportions. Set after World War II, it ostensibly examines the need for better kitchen design by making and recording field observations as it were."
