    I just watched this the other day, and I was blown away. I never see this get mentioned in the lists of food movies I see around online.

    It's a good murder mystery in the "Cary Grant/Audry Hepburn/Hitchcock" style. Think "Charade" or "To Catch a Thief" The rivalry between chefs should not be missed, and leads to some of the funniest scenes in the entire movie.

    The movie features many great food shots, including a lot of classic food. The movie evens features duck a la presse!

    Anyone else seen this classic?

    Now I'm working my way through the Chef! series from the UK. Its pretty funny, but I gotta say, I've never seen anybody be so articulate when dressing somebody down before.

    I'm a big George Segal fan. Haven't seen The Great Chefs of Europe, but I want to now. Thanks for the tip!

    Love that movie!!! Used to own it on VHS but don't know where it is.  Anyone know if it is available on DVD or Blueray?
