Good Cooking Movie/Books

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I'm a big fan of Kitchen Confidental the book of course and the 2005 tv drama they made for only one season. (grrrr)
I would like to know if there are anyother books or shows that kinda show the otherside of the cooking world.
Looking forward to your responses.
Thanx

I know you know, but let me add: "Waiting" is a good movie.

Waiting 2 wasn't as good as the first but it was still something funny to watch.
I've seen Dish Dogs before but it wasn't really that cooking oriented.

The opening scene of Eat Drink Man Woman is a must see.
I also recommend Big Night

I just bought Kitchen Confidential. Going to start it once I finish the book I'm reading now, The Man Who Ate The World by Jay Rayner. I reccomend this one. Good read.

Another good read is The Man Who Ate Everything by Jeffrey Steingarten.

He's written several cookbooks, is a sometimes judge on "Iron Chef America", and his present job is travelling the world, eating in restaurants, and writing reviews of them for the "Weekend Journal" section of the WSJ. Is this a great gig or what? :peace:
