1. Babette's Feast (1987)
The Academy Award-winning film about a former Parisian chef who livens up a Danish community with her delicious cooking.
When "Babette's Feast" won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film in 1988, it was no surprise — the Danish movie directed by Gabriel Axel is a wonder. The first two acts center on life in a remote village governed by straight-laced religious zealots. The movie takes an interesting turn in the amazingly lush and sensual third act when Babette (a former Parisian chef and French refugee) surprises villagers with a feast like none they have ever experienced. Mix in unrequited love, personal misfortune and just a soupçon of comedy, and the result is really a masterpiece of foodie filmmaking.
