One not mentioned here, but I think in another thread, took place in a three star joint in France, the hero was an ex-Navy cook who fell in love with the irascible chef's daughter..saw it in the last year, but disremember the name.

These 3 movies are very good, if you get a chance watch them.

 

 

1. A touch of spice (from Turkey).

 

2. Stomach (from Spain).

 

3. Mistress of spices (from India).

Does Under Siege count?

Babette's Feast. Not just for the recipes (and there's a link to the complete recipes, Sauce Perigourdine included), but for the amazing story. This is my favorite quote:

 
Old Lorenz Lowenhielm: −Mercy and truth have met together. Righteousness and bliss shall kiss one another. Man, in his weakness and shortsightedness believes he must make choices in this life. He trembles at the risks he takes. We do know fear. But no. Our choice is of no importance. There comes a time when our eyes are opened and we come to realize that mercy is infinite. We need only await it with confidence and receive it with gratitude. Mercy imposes no conditions. And lo! Everything we have chosen has been granted to us. And everything we rejected has also been granted. Yes, we even get back what we rejected. For mercy and truth have met together, and righteousness and bliss shall kiss one another.
 
Estómago is an Italo-Brazilian production. Not from Spain.

Hm, always thought ratatouille was a vegetable dish, I'm not familiar with one containing meat, do you have a recipe to share?

 

I've had very good results using the Thomas Keller version.

Yes, I wrote potatoes but I meant vegetables :)Should have mentioned that I'm both curious and confused.

 

Only tried it once, and it was a variation that I've found online, the recipe involved some chicken breast as well. However, the tastes didn't mix so well, so I haven't tried anything similar since. I will try Thomas Keller's version, maybe that will change my mind.
