Let me just say it right there, I love food and everything that’s related to it. From the growing the veggies to eating it, I love the whole process. I can’t get enough of the way the food is prepared and the aromas just take me to another world! If I happen to meet any friends, it’s the unspoken rule that we are going to eat. So, if you are someone like me, you really need to check out some movies that are based on food.

1. Ratatouille


Remy is a rat who loves food and has a sophisticated palate. He meets Alfredo Linguini and his fate changes as he becomes the most famous chef in Paris.

2. Chef


A professional chef who, after a public disagreement with a food critic, quits his job at a popular Los Angeles restaurant and returns to his hometown of Miami to fix up a food truck. The movie was so loved by the people that now we are having the official remake of the movie.

3. Charlie And The Chocolate Factory


The movie is about Charlie, who wins a contest and is along with four other contest winners, subsequently led by Wonka on a tour of his chocolate factory, the most magnificent in the world.

4. Jiro Dreams Of Sushi


The film follows Jiro Ono, an 85-year-old sushi master, and owner of Sukiyabashi Jiro, a Michelin three-star restaurant.

5. Julie And Julia

Julie and Julia

The film contrasts the life of chef Julia Child in the early years of her culinary career with the life of young New Yorker Julie Powell, who aspires to cook all 524 recipes in Child’s cookbook in 365 days, a challenge she described on her popular blog that made her a published author.

6. Bawarchi


This 1972 movie was an adaptation of the Bengali movie, Galpa Holeo Satyi, which showcased actor Rajesh Khanna as a cook working for a joint family living under the same roof.

7. The Lunchbox


Young, neglected housewife Ila (Nimrat Kaur) in Mumbai sends an extra-special lunch to her husband via the city’s sprawling courier service in the hopes of rekindling the flame. When it is mistakenly delivered to a solitary widower (Irfan Khan), the two begin a sweet though deluded relationship.

8. Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana


This 2012 movie might just be the story of any Punjabi family that runs a popular restaurant–a secret recipe that made the family’s business famous, to every day running of a restaurant from an eccentric family.

9. The Hundred-Foot Journey


It is the story of a feud between two adjacent restaurants in a French town: one operated by a recently relocated Indian family and the other, a lofty Michelin-starred restaurant. This movie shows the story of Hassan Kadam,  who with his talent and hard work wins hearts and stomachs.

10. Stanley Ka Dabba


The movie though stands for food yet somehow has a very ironical story behind it. The film revolves around the dabbas that each student bring from their home except Stanley. He works in a dhabba, there’s food revolving around him and yet he is left hungry.
