Anytime Keri Russell makes a pie in Waitress
I watched this movie on an airplane once and remember feeling incredibly sad for all of the characters, but the movie trailer (which I just re-watched to check out the pies) made it look like some quirky romantic comedy.
How hungry I am: Pie is one of those foods where I always think I love it and then when I’m actually eating it, I start wishing I were eating something else. That being said, watching Keri Russell baking makes me think maybe I actually do love pie. The most alluring one is the “Pregnant, Miserable, Self-Pitying Loser Pie,” which not only has a name that almost entirely resonates with me (minus “Pregnant”), but is a mix of oatmeal and fruitcake, which sounds amazing.
The whole “I Want Candy” scene in Marie Antoinette
I think I am one out of maybe 10 people who really loved this movie and still makes references to it. Actually, a lot of people I know hated it. This is one of my favorite movie scenes ever. EVER.
How hungry I am: Starving!!!! Famished!!! The cupcakes! The icing! The fruit! The jelly! This is WHY I want to marry into ROYALTY — to be surrounded by baked goods at all times! And, unrelated to the food, but someone remind me to incorporate more feathers into my outfits.
The Chocolate Room in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
This mention does NOT apply to the very frightening Johnny Depp remake.
How hungry I am: VERY. I knew I wanted to include a photo of Gene Wilder eating the teacup because I loved that scene when I was growing up. My life goal has always been to drink tea and then eat the cup afterwards. That’s it, I don’t aspire to do anything else. Also I would definitely drink the chocolate river. Also this movie is kinda fucked up.
The strudel and cream in Inglorious Basterds
I can barely pay attention to the dialogue in this scene because this looks so good.
How hungry I am: Like the pies in Waitress, I don’t think I’m a big strudel fan. But the cream!!!!!!!!!
Pretty much every single scene in Jiro Dreams of Sushi
This documentary made me incredibly emotional.
How hungry I am: The sushi looks like art to me, I would be afraid to eat it for that reason — it all just looks so perfect and dainty. I’ve never had egg custard, but I want to try it. WOULD LOVE to have dinner with Jiro and his entire family. I wonder if he’d be repulsed if I told him I eat sushi from a makeshift deli in the basement of my apartment building.
All of the food scenes in Chef, but especially the part where Jon Favreau makes a grilled cheese
Seriously. I used to microwave bread and cheese to make grilled cheeses at 3AM in college. This is like ASMR to me.
How hungry I am: Slight advantage to this movie because it’s all about food, but I’d saw off my hand for one of the Cuban sandwiches they make.
