Just in time for the holidays, Jenny An served up the "Seven tastiest feast scenes in movies," ranging from Eat Drink Man Woman to the Americanized version of that flick,Tortilla Soup, to The Nutty Professor and, of course, Big Night.

Our plate looked pretty full, but then Anonymous responded with this: "Oh my. You forgot some."

Anon was more forthcoming:

Chocolat! Tampopo! Like Water for Chocolate!

And then XSwede delivered this:

You guys forgot the best film of all: Babette's Feast -- with the old Swedes trying to not enjoy how great the food is and in the end, forgiving each other....

What other movies did we miss? Post them below, or join the conversation already started here.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
