Is December over already? Well almost, but the Holiday season is still on. So besides partying and drinking, it is also chow time. Yup, it is the time of the year when we all say "Bring it on, it’s December!" without worrying about those extra calories. Food not only feeds the body, but also the soul and as George Bernard Shaw rightly said, "There is no love sincerer than the love of food."
Of course, movies also help in busting boredom and lethargy. And when food and movies come together, the combination is just tempting. I am not talking about the big tub of popcorn which you chomp while watching a movie. In fact, I am talking about some amazing movie scenes involving food.
So if you are a lover of food and often imagine yourself being transported into those scenes, read on:
Let’s start with breakfast! Since breakfast is the most important meal of the day, it is necessary to eat heartily. Imagine yourself as Bill Murray in the neighborhood diner of Punxsutawney. You can hog on warm pancakes and pastries that melt in the mouth. And the best part is, you don’t have to worry about brushing or flossing or those love handles as you are stuck in a time loop!
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Yahoo! You just won a Golden Ticket to Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory. While Mr. Wonka (played by none other than beloved Johnny Depp) gives you a tour of his bizarre, beautiful factory, you can drool over the sugar-coated walls and chocolate rivers. But don’t be too greedy, you don’t want Willy Wonka to turn you into an over-sized blueberry!
We can never get enough of chocolates or Johnny Depp. Picture yourself in a small French village. And there is this mysterious woman selling luscious chocolates and candies that tantalize the taste buds and awaken unexpected emotions. Indulge yourself with this exotic chocolate and for your entertainment, there is Johnny Depp who plays the guitar.
If you’re a foodie, you will definitely want to be in this movie! The beautifully-animated scenes gives a whole new meaning to being a food lover. Join Remy as he explores the famous kitchen of Chef Gusteau. Cook some exotic dishes and say yes to cheese!
Kung Fu Panda
If fighting makes you hungry, don’t feel guilty to gorge on some fluffy dumplings. Once your energy bar is refilled and the rumbling noise of your belly has ceased, you can get back to your mission of being the Dragon Warrior.
9 1/2 weeks
Call it a food fetish but the occasional kinky indulgence of food is good. Cherries, jalapenos, chocolate cakes, strawberries and also chillies never looked so tempting on a screen before. Imagine yourself as Kim Bassinger and Mickey Rourke is teasing you with all kinds of tempting food. Just yummylicious!
Eat, Pray, Love
Anyone can be in the shoes of Julia Roberts as Liz Gilbert. Searching for your true self, globe-trotting and indulging in authentic Italian pizzas. You can bask in the warm Italian sun and enjoy a slice of happiness.
Lady & The Tramp
Nothing can be more romantic than a little table, gingham cloth, breadsticks, candlelight, and eating spaghetti from the same plate. And while eating the same piece, you and your partner’s face slowly coming closer. This is romantic and how!
Babette is hosting an extravagant feast after she won a lottery ticket and everyone is invited. If you are in search of some plentiful, sumptuous and exotic French food, head towards the small village on the remote western coast of Jutland. Appease yourself in this lavishly organized one-of-a-kind banquet.
