Cooking films

Food is missing from most films, and that's a shame. A film where characters stir in soup, slice onions, sizzle a steak, or spin a fork of spaghetti across a plate is delicious, isn't it? A story that takes place entirely over dinner, or a film set in an Italian kitchen. It's comfort food for your eyes. Films about food are not only fun to watch, but they can also be a fantastic motivation to try new dishes in the kitchen. Or even to start cooking! On WithLove, you can find a selection of cooking films in which cooking and food play an important role in the story rather than just being in the background. Pick a cooking film and get some inspiration for your next dish!
