Goodfellas: the prison dinner
The breakfast scene in Goodfellas (played by Scorcese's mum).
"He don't eat no meat' from My Big Fat Greek Wedding
When Harry met Sally directed by Nora Ephron. From her first book 'Heartburn' where the lead character, is a cookbook writer, to her latest film 'Julie/Julia' about Julia Child, Ephron is probably the biggest foodie in film. She also wrote a brilliantly sulphurous essay on Food Critics in a collection of her early writings 'Wallflower at the Orgy'.
Her recreation of Julia Child's omelette flipping scene is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wt2znsOygJY
Classic dialogue in the 'Royale with Cheese' scene from Pulp Fiction
Spaghetti scene from Lady and The Tramp.
A Night at the Opera, Marx Brothers
More menacingly Jimmy Cagney's grapefruit scene in Public Enemy. This scene was regarded as shocking in 1931.
The beer on the roof scene from Shawshank Redemption. Mmm, you can just feel how good that cold beer is...
Great styling here in the 'I want candy scene' scene from Marie Antoinette

As always, things can change, ideas come up, the hostess doesn't feel like doing that dish anymore...
