Top Ten Tuesday: Foodie TV and movies



Welcome to this week's edition of Top Ten Tuesday which is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week the them

e is Non-book Freebie so I decided to talk about foreign movies.

The whole point of this post at the beginning was to talk about a movie called Language Lessons which I watched a couple of weeks ago and really enjoyed. Then I started putting my list together and realised that I could easily make a list of ten which are all about food! So here are ten foreign foodie TV series or movies I have enjoyed. 

Midnight Diner (Japan) - I have watched a season and a half of this. Every now and again I think I should watch more. (Review here)

Foodie Love (Spain) - I binged watched this during lockdown (Review here)

Tuesday Club (Sweden) - I watched this as part of the Scandinavian Film Festival and really enjoyed it! (review here)

Babette's Feast (Sweden) - Something of a foodie film classic. (Review here)

The Perfect Dinner (Italy) - I saw this one as part of the Italian Film Festival last year. (Review here)

The Recipe (Korea) - This was one of the earliest foreign movies I posted about on this blog. (review here)

The Tasting (France) - My most recent French Film Festival movie. I saw this a couple of weeks ago and just posted about it last weekend. (review here)

Delicious (France) - This is supposedly the story of the first restaurant although I am not sure how historically correct it is! (review here)

Kings of Pastry (France) - These days I watch Bake Off:  The Professionals to see amazing creations like the ones in this, but these were next level. (review here)

Romantics Anonymous (France) -  I have probably watched this movie 3 or 4 times over the years. It is a lovely film (review here)

Oh, and watch Language Lessons. It was good!

I will be sharing this post with Weekend Cooking which I host here each Saturday.

  1. I am somehow very drawn to Romantics Anonymous haha.

    1. I love that movie! Might be time for me to watch it again even!

  2. Ah you obviously love cooking and those films are amazing.

    1. Definitely love foodie stuff whether it be books, films, TV shows, cooking shows - oh and eating!

  3. Who knew there were so many films about food??? Have to say, I don't know any of these. The only one that comes to my mind is Chef from 2014 about a chef that starts a food truck. Touching and humorous....

    1. Chef was a great movie! I might have to do another list with English movies. Pretty sure I can come up with 10 foodie movies easily!

  4. I loved Chef but thanks for the suggestions about so many foodie movies here. Will see if the library can get some of these.
