Movie? Food? Not popcorn

What is the best food movie ever made? A.O. Scott thinks its Ratatouille. Okay, maybe; good cartoon. But I don't think it's the very best. I nominate Babette's Feast, and if that's toooooo, well you know, religious, how about Tampopo. Your nominee. Scott's not very depthy case Here.
