The end of the week is near, and I have a slow moment.  Time for another top 10 movie list.

Each film need not be about cooks or cooking per se.  Food simply must be integral to the central theme, and make you hungry watching it.

1.  Babette’s Feast (also one of my favorite religious movies)

2. Eat, Drink, Man, Woman

3.  Like Water for Chocolate

4.  Mostly Martha

5.  Big Night

6.  Chocolat

7.  Waitress

8. Fried Green Tomatoes

9.  Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

10.  Tortilla Soup

Haven’t seen Tampopo, God of Cookery, or Kitchen Stories, so they’re not on the list.

23 polls say yes, at least in preference to increased deficits and further cuts.

Addendum: It’s not getting much mainstream media coverage, but there is a bit of a counter tea party underway this year.
