Top Five Food Spreads in Cinema History

We've all experienced it: you're sitting in a dark movie theater and the seats, walls and sounds of other peoples' muffled farts melt away because you're so enraptured with the story. And, inevitably, as you're knee deep in this fictional film world, you'll experience some savory scenes of sumptuous food spreads that make your tongue swell, your nostrils flare and your belly yearn.

Oh, Daddy...

So it's only natural that this food blog would offer up a little countdown of the top five food spreads in cinema history.

Now, we're not talking about food moments (the slicing of garlic with a razor blade in Goodfellas, the kinky food fight in Fried Green Tomatoes, or ample food-making scenes in Julie & Julia, for example).

We're talking about the slow-pan of the camera across an incredible bounty of beautiful foods that ignite your deepest, darkest appetites.
