Foodie-Movie of the Week: Julie and Julia

When you are feeling hungover - or generally tired and a little the worse for wear - there is nothing like settling down with a cup of (green) tea in front of a really comforting movie... more specifically, a comforting movie that heavily features FOOD. I thought it would be fun to create a list of the top ten Foodie movies, ripe for the picking on any given drab and headachey afternoon....

Julie and Julia
First in line has to be 'Julie and Julia', the perfect Hangover-Day film. It is extremely easy on the eyes, for one thing - one of the opening scenes sees Amy Adams' character making a chocolate pie thing, while Meryl Streep (playing Julia Child) swans and bellows her way around 1950s Paris. If you're feeling hungry but lazy, this film will evoke in you a desire to cook; and the scene near the end where Julie is celebrating with her friends (see below) makes me pine for a similar party! Food, booze, friends and a view of New York...
