    It's so cool how consumerism and media-culture have created a 'lens' for colorful culinary marketing.

    We've seen celebrity-ads about foods/restaurants, and of course, we know of the Planet Hollywood restaurant franchise and Newman's Own supermarket-friendly food company (owned by American actor Paul Newman!).

    Maybe all of this 'shopping-couture' has contributed to the popularity of the Food Network, which presents celebrity chefs showing-off their favorite culinary masterpieces.

    I myself am a huge fan of Newman's Own Alfredo pasta-sauce and like to guess which actors/actresses who like it as much as I do!

    There's no reason the pageantry of the culinary arts can not toast consumerism, celebrity-confetti, and general food marketing as well!

    Do you have a favorite food-themed film? I like Mystic Pizza and Big Night!
