16 Favorite Food Movies and Food-Centric Scenes of Valley Chefs

Categories: Chow Bella

Chef Maurice Gordon, The Westin Phoenix Downtown
My favorite food scene from a movie would be from Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory when Violet eats a piece of candy that tastes like an entire meal and then she swells up like a giant blueberry.

Chris Constantino, Chef and owner, Costantino's Kitchen
The scene in No Reservations where Catherine Zeta Jones beings a raw steak from the kitchen and slams it down on the guest's table with a knife and asks him if it's rare enough for him.

Chef Brian Konefal, Coppa Cafe, Flagstaff
The scene from Tommy Boy where he describes eating bear claws, two at a time!

"I'd better not. I have what doctors call a little bit of a weight problem. I used to grab bear claws as a kid, two at a time, and I'd get them lodged right in this region here."

Seriously I was cracking up, Oh Tommy Boy. Also love the Godfather scene where he's cutting garlic with a razor. Oh the good ole days :) Thanks Laura Hahnefeld for mentioning 32 Shea!

Yes! Love this. Agree with The Birdcage and Big Night, especially. Those were great movies to study food on film.
