5 Great Food Movies

By KCRW’s Good Food host, Evan Kleiman

A great food movie feeds that part of your soul that’s obsessed with food, dining, kitchens, and eating. They are the ultimate in food voyeurism, a disease I’ve had all my life. You too?

Mildred Pierce

Both HBO and original Joan Crawford versions — for her gumption to support herself and her daughters by taking a home pie business and turning it into a successful restaurant.

Babette’s Feast

For a most extraordinary look at how food can seduce even the most shut down of souls.


For an exaltation of obsession and repetition as a path to culinary (and sensual) excellence.

Big Night

For showing what real Italian food is to the world (well, to the art house movie world, anyway), and how one’s passion can cause one to understand what’s truly important.


For how an unlikely creature shares an unabashed love of the culinary life with us.

    All great movies in the list. I was surprised how much I enjoyed Ratatouille, though Eat, Drink, Man, Woman is one of my favourites.
    Do wine movies count? What about Sideways…and you missed Mostly Martha (much better than the US version, No reservations).
