Mouth-watering films! – Our update

Films that make your mouth water – who doesn’t know some?
After all, for many of us they are a source of inspiration that we are happy to watch again and again (“Hmm, that looks amazing! I definitely want to cook that myself sometime!”) – but sometimes also a source of frustration (“Blast! Now I’m hungry again!“) … ;-)

This blog was just a couple of weeks old when we started building up a list of “mouth-watering” films in which the subject of cooking takes on particular importance. Over time, we have been able to extend this list by a few classic films, documentaries and new arrivals. It’s now twice as long – time for an update. We would be delighted to hear your suggestions for films we haven’t yet listed via the comments function.
