Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 10/03/1996
"...A feast of a film done....Top-grade acting, writing and direction. It's the tastiest dish around..."
Entertainment Weekly - 10/04/1996
"A movie to love....The real feast is in the mix of finely delineated characters..." -- Rating: A
Variety - 02/05/1996
"...Extremely well directed, making for a smartly made, delightfully acted period piece whose sensibility neatly straddles art films and the mainstream..."
Film Comment - 03/01/1996
"...Remarkably assured....An amusing and ultimately very moving reflection..."
Los Angeles Times - 09/20/1996
"...As delicately and deliciously prepared as the dishes it features....It is a sensual feast that understands, as great chefs do, the virtues of taking its time..."
Wall Street Journal - 03/22/2012
"Gastronomic perfectionism is the subject -- and fateful curse -- of this small, stirring drama that Stanley Tucci co-directed with Campbell Scott."
