Hollywood’s famous movie chefs
In honor of tomorrow’s Academy Awards ceremony,

Fat City has already paid tribute to the movies that have had Oscar-winning performances by stars playing waitresses or famous scenes in restaurants. But today’s Los Angeles Times offers a great slideshow featuring some of the films — not all of them Oscar-worthy, but most of them famous — and television shows that that have featured chefs. The list includes Juliette Binoche in Chocolat, Jacqueline Bissett in Someone is Killing the Great Chefs of Europe, Jackie Chan in Mr. Nice Guy, “Chef” in South Park, and Courtney Cox as chef Monica Geller in the long-running sitcom Friends.
It’s a nostalgic trip through culinary history — Hollywood-style.
