Food in films

I know, MAYBE this belongs in "Off Topic", but it is about FOOD, after all, not guns and stuff like that. Not that I have a thing at all against guns.
Now, what are your favorite scenes featuring food in the movies?
Here I go:
"The Loved One" The scene where Rod Steiger is feeding his Mom a roast piglet is incredible.
"Tampopo" Many fantastic scenes of everything from scrambled eggs being cooked, to ramen.
"Big Night" I've only seen it once, I know a lot of folks like it.
"Dirty Harry" The hot dog scene.
"Hickey & Boggs" The hot dog scene at Pink's.
"2001" Not exciting food, but kind of fun to see people actually eating in a sci-fi pic, as in "Alien" (near the beginning).
"Tom Jones" I THINK I am right about this: There's a scene where a couple are ripping apart lamb's legs and eyeing each other over what they are gonna have fun doing later. Right?
"A Clockwork Orange" I like the scene where Alex is eating the spaghetti in the bathrobe, and of course the closer, with him being fed in the hospital bed.
That's all I can think of now.
