Which movies do you like that have great food scenes? 1) Martha, a German movie about a chef who takes in her orphaned niece. Has to be the cleanest kitchen ever. 2) Big night, a movie about the last night of an Italian restaurant. 3) Goodfellas, yes, Goodfellas. The cooking scene in the prison and also the home at the end just show how important food is. And then the great close when Henry Hill can't find a decent spaghetti sauce in the Witness Protection program.
