Lewes Film ClubThe ultimate ‘foodie’ film. Tampopo (Dandelion), widowowner of a run-down noodle shop , is the worst cook in Tokyo. So she hires a cowboy truck driver to persuade a group of gourmet cooks to improve her skill and in doing beat the best restaurants at their own game. A series of anecdotes on the subject of food, delivered with great style and some hilariously cutting observation. A gourmet’s salute to the ecstasy of eating and not to be seen on an empty stomach!
