This section is dedicated to food in films. The aim is to post recipes of dishes which have been mentioned in films be they blockbusters or "B" films, old or recent films, children's', or adult films, family or horror films, drama or comedy films, black and white or colour fact any film which has been shown on the cinema big screen or television.


We plan to add a new film to the section every month or so, hopefully building it into a gastronomic feast for both the eyes and stomach.  Each film will have its own page dedicated to it where you'll be able to read a brief synopsis of the plot and the part of the script which relates to the featured recipe. Of course, sometimes it may be necessary to  utilise our "poetic licence"  with regards to the actual recipes but we'll stick as close to the truth as possible.


If you know of any film which features food, whether in a big way or maybe just one scene or the mention of a dish or recipe, I'd welcome any suggestions so please write to me at
