I got hungry just scrolling through your picks for my latest Buzzworthy Challenge. You all picked out a great group of foodie movies that have me craving everything from Greek food to candy to Thanksgiving dinner. Here are a few that sounded extra-yummy to me:
Eat Drink Man Woman
Bookmarked by Fab_Kitty, who wrote: "In this lovely Ang Lee film, several food preparation sequences are interspersed in the story of a widowed chef father having trouble with the maturation of his three young adult daughters.

Firedancyr7 called it "a story about a woman who can express her love and emotions through her cooking to such a point that those who eat it can feel her emotions as their own. An excellent movie — but be prepared it's a foreign film and that means subtitles."
Three more drool-worthy movies, plus a widget with all your picks, so

This is one of my favorite movies, especially since Sandra Oh is in it! This is so sweet..."
