I just watched this the other day, and I was blown away. I never see this get mentioned in the lists of food movies I see around online.
It's a good murder mystery in the "Cary Grant/Audry Hepburn/Hitchcock" style. Think "Charade" or "To Catch a Thief" The rivalry between chefs should not be missed, and leads to some of the funniest scenes in the entire movie.
The movie features many great food shots, including a lot of classic food. The movie evens features duck a la presse!
Anyone else seen this classic?
Now I'm working my way through the Chef! series from the UK. Its pretty funny, but I gotta say, I've never seen anybody be so articulate when dressing somebody down before.
