A salute to four great thinkers.
If Rossini had not preferred food to music there would have been no
Tornados Rossini. If Nellie Melba had not become so fat through eating too many of the Peach Melbas created for her by Escoffier, he would not have had to remedy the situation by inventing Melba Toast. If he hadn't lost his all on that last turn of the cards, would the Earl of Sandwich have found inspiration for a snack? Today, would a champion of the people like Garibaldi have to share the honours with a biscuit called the 'Mandela'?
Bernard Bresslaw, aided by David Troughton and Christopher Ryan, brings these food heroes to life.

Starring Tsutomu Yamazaki Nobuko Miyamoto
Director Juzo Itami claims that to man, eating and sex are intrinsically the same thing. To prove his point he tosses together a gourmet gangster and his moll, a knight errant truck driver and a young woman who cannot even cook noodles, to serve up a wickedly funny 'foodie' movie.
