10 Off-beat Films About Food

Check out one of these food-related films and earn a Chow Down badge:

1. Big night [videodisc] by Rysher Entertainment presents a Timpano production:
Determined to drum up business and foil his Little Italy rival, Secondo concocts a rumor that bandleader Louis Prima will dine at his restaurant that very night, sending chef Primo into a frenzy. Will it be the finest night of his career, or will it be a financial disaster? Will Louis Prima actually come to dine? With wonderful performances by Stanley Tucci and Tony Shalhoub, it's worth viewing this film just to see the dinner's masterpiece timpano.

2. Toast [videodisc] by W2 Media Inc, BBC, and Screen WM present ; produced by Faye Ward ; written by Lee Hall ; directed by SJ Clarkson:
England's reputation for terrible food may be deserved if this film, based on food writer Nigel Slater's memoirs, can be believed. Nigel's mum may have served meals from boiled tins, but he and his dad adored her. When she dies and her place in his father's affections is threatened by their gastronomically adept cleaning lady, Nigel enters into an unofficial culinary contest with his late mother's rival.
