Honorable Mention:

This movie deserves some culinary credit as it portrays love and life through the eyes of a young girl who doesn't know the difference between them. Away at cooking school in Paris, Sabrina discovers that these distractions effect her ability to create even the most simple tasks in the kitchen. It is not until she finally gains her confidence in Paris that she finally gains her confidence in life and love.

Not so much a cooking movie as much as the story of a young city couple out to conquer the country life on an egg farm. Through the many trials and the unwanted relationship with country stove, the heroine in this story proves what love really means; sacrifice, determination, and above all, putting yourself in your husbands shoes and raising chickens to live the his country dream!

Watch the Trailer

This movie is another exception to a typical food movie, but deserves a spot in our top ten because of the memories and joy that comes when good people find good food. The power of friendship behind the legendary Whistle Stop cafĂ© will not only make you a fan of fried green tomatoes, but for other southern comforts as well.
