Dinner and a movie -- can you think of a better way to spend a night preceding the fast approaching Academy Awards?

Here are three of our favourite food flicks (and some accompanying recipe ideas) to help your enjoy an evening at home.

Chocolat (2000)
A mysterious woman (Juliette Binoche) opens a chocolate shop in a small French village during Lent, shakes up the morality of the community and eventually finds love with a handsome river rat (Johnny Depp).

It would be very hard indeed to watch this film without your own hand-picked selection of chocolate treats nearby.

Chocolate Recipes:
Chocolate Fondue
Chocolate Soufflé for Two
Chocolate Volcano Cakes

Mostly Martha (2002)
Martha is the head chef at a chic German restaurant. Her cooking is precise, uncompromising and perfect -- until she hires a charming and carefree Italian chef. Eating pasta on the floor has never seemed so enchanting.

Pasta Recipes:
Clams and Pasta in White Wine Sauce
Creamy Walnut Pasta Shells
Spaghetti Carbonara
Spaghetti with Eggplant and Goat Cheese

Tom Jones (1963)
This movie version of Henry Fielding's novel stars Albert Finney as the lovable adopted son of a British country squire who embarks on a journey of sexual adventures (including the disreputable Molly). After this film, you will never eat lobster the same way again.

Lobster Recipes:
Classic Lobster
Chunky Lobster Chowder
Lobster Cocktail with Ginger Vinaigrette
Lobster Fettuccine
