I'm looking for some movies that have cooking as part of the theme. I have Babette's Feast, Chocolat & Big Night. Any other suggestions?

Someone on amazon made a list... try googling it as well.

Tortilla soup came to mind for me although I don't remember it

When is your special night?
Because "No Reservations" with Catherine Zeta Johns is pretty awesome, but it's not out on DVD yet. It should be coming out pretty soon though.

Another one - "Ratatouile", really funny, but it's a cartoon.

how about the all time yummy Like Water for Chocolate. It's in subtitles, but a wonderful movie none the less!

Some that I really enjoyed:

Eat, Drink, Man, Woman

Tortilla Soup (w/Hector Elizondo and Racquel Welch among others)--much like Eat, Drink Man, Woman

What's Cooking (various ethnic families and their interpersonal relationships during Thanksgiving)

American Adobo (I could relate to this one!)

and I absolutely loved Chocolat!!! I know there are more that I like but I can't think of the names offhand. I'll do more research and come back.

Eat drink man woman is one of my favorite foreign movies. It is a wonderful movie....definately food themed....but so much more!

A Feast at Midnight

It's about a boy chef at a all boys school who sneaks out at night to cook wonderful food with other outcast boys because the school food is crap. They form like this secret meeting/group and always coming up with great ways to scrap up common ingredients to make high class meals.
It's a very, very good movie.
