Food Films To Savor: New York Food Film Festival Edition

It's been a great year for food films (see Part 1 and Part 2). We've been delighted with the crop so far, and thanks to the upcoming New York Food Film Festival (October 13-16), there are now plenty more on our radar. Check out some of the offerings below.

Dinner For Two
Part food porn, part how-to, this film chronicles the making of a three-course meal. Expect romance, suspense and murder.

The Best Thing I Ever Done
Di Fara is a legendary pizza spot and owner Domenico DeMarco is considered an artist by many pizza aficionados. He makes each pizza himself, by hand. Watch the full short film below.

Good, Better, Best
The Anderles cook sorghum syrup every year for themselves and their neighbors. Watch the full short film below.

Empire-building chef Gaston Acurio speaks very highly of the Lima, Peru food festival, Mistura.

A moldy food ballet of sorts.
