In the movies and scripted TV I've seen recently, where they're cooking, no matter what it is, I keep wanting to shout, "You're doing it wrong!" These characters are supposed to be professional cooks or bakers, but couldn't stir their ways out of paper bags!

In Lassie Come Home, Joe asks his mother if they could have a "roast o' beef" for dinner. As a child I always thought that sounded so intriguing, and wondered if it was different--better!-- than just "roast beef". Also, wondered what Yorkshire Pudding was and why they wouldn't have it for dessert!

Is ice a "food"? The scene in Grumpier Old Men while Raquel Welch runs the ice cube down her neck...

There was also that ice cube scene in 9 1/2 weeks, but some honey was also present there.

Memorable foods in movies?

How about the noodles in "Tampopo"?

And the "meal" Katherine Hepburn makes at the end of "Woman of the Year"?

And Joan Crawford's chicken in "Mildred Pierce?

And this one makes me hungry just to think of it:

omg, how could I forget the scene where they fry rice sticks/noodles in The Four Seasons?! I used to make a Mongolian Beef recipe w/ fried rice sticks, but haven't been able to find hot bean paste locally in forever. A friend told me to try a certain chili bean paste from Amazon and it just arrived. I need to make some mongolian beef! :)

Cindy_7, that's another from Christmas in Connecticut: "A looovely raw egg floatin' in your milk". For a movie about about a gal who can't cook, there sure is a lot of food in it!

The one that I mainly remember is a not too well known movie called "Fatso" about a man who loved to cook and eat and had a bad weight problem. The scene where he and some other guys were having a group therapy meeting about their problem and they started talking about food, more and more and all of a sudden there was this hilarious scene where they had gotten all together in one of their kitchens and were having this humongous cooking and eating orgy, it was just too funny. It starred Dom DeLuis.

You do need to bop on over to YouTube and watch Binging with Babish videos. Not all of his recipes are centered around movies/TV, but he's rather a hoot to watch. (The "Basics" recipes are not centered around movies, but nearly all the others are.)

Boiling lobsters in Annie Hall.

The $5 milkshake in Pulp Fiction.

And speaking of milkshakes, when Margo makes the milkshake comment about what drink Eve will want in All About Eve. Not to mention the candy she picks up a few times before eating. And that great line, "Remind me to tell you about the time I looked into the heart of an artichoke."

The pie in The Help.
