Close the curtains, get the snacks ready and curl up with some of our favourite foodie movies, paired with their perfect nibbles.


A single mother (Juliette Binoche) and her daughter move to rural France and open a chocolaterie across the street from the local church, causing a moral uproar amongst the village’s conservative population. The only thing better-looking than the sweet treats concocted by Binoche is Johnny Depp’s rough-and-ready gypsy eating said sweet treats.

What to eat:

Do not, we repeat, DO NOT attempt to watch this movie without a large supply of chocolate.

Julie & Julia

We love, love, love Julia Child, and adored this retelling of one woman’s attempt to cook her way through Child’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking. Both Meryl Streep and Amy Adams are fantastic as usual, and Streep’s perfect delivery of her opening line (“Butter,” said with an obviously watering mouth!) has us starving from the get-go.

What to eat:

Something rich and savoury is a must, so plan your dinner around the movie. As Child herself once said, “If you’re afraid of butter, use cream!” so we recommend both: opt for a big bowl of creamy pasta with buttery garlic bread on the side.

A rat with an exceptionally well-educated palate becomes one of Paris’ most successful chefs. This film is plenty of fun, and family-friendly to boot.

What to eat:

Put together a simple cheeseboard with 2-3 French cheeses, a handful of red grapes and the best baguette you can get your paws on. Add wine as desired!
