TV celebrity chefs congregated at the James Beard awards, where — among the cocktail chitchat — a group of them started talking about their favorite food movies. Here’s what they said.
Tom Colicchio of Top Chef said he loved the risotto scene in “Big Night” and thought “Like Water for Chocolate” was really sexy. Curtis stone of Take Home Chef liked “Ratatouille” and “The Cook, the Thief, His Wife and Her Lover.” Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto liked “Tampopo” while Top Chef runner up Marcel Vigneron found the most realistic food movie to be “Dinner Rush.” He says, “It’s all one night and the food critic comes in, and one of the line cooks has problems with gambling, somebody gets capped in the the restaurant.”
