Who Is Killing the Great Chefs of Europe? for Food ‘n Flix


It’s time to announce the next movie for Food ‘n Flix. In this monthly group a ‘host’ picks a movie of their choice that pertains to food. Everyone watches the movie and then makes a recipe which the film inspired.

And guess who is hosting this month? Yes it is yours truly. I have dug up a little retro jewel for you to enjoy. Let’s travel back in time to 1978, a dangerous time for great chefs. It seems many chefs are victims of unfortunate accidents. But who would do this? Who Is Killing the Great Chefs of Europe?

When a famous pastry chef (Jacqueline Bisset) is invited to London to prepare a dessert for the queen, she finds herself in the middle of the culinary murder mystery. Natasha’s ex-husband Robby (George Segal), a fast food millionaire, comes to her aid and does his best to protect her. Is there a connection with an article written by culinary critic Maximillian “Max” Vandeveer (Robert Morley)? Will Natasha fall victim as well to this gourmand crime spree?

This wonderful comedy-mystery takes us on a little trip to a few grand European cities were a series of chefs find misfortune as they turn up dead in a manner reflecting their most famous dishes.


I hope many of you will decide to join me for this fun event. How can one refuse an invitation to dinner and a movie?

G’day! What an interesting series Evelyne, true!
I LOVE this movie and have seen it many times, but sadly, it is not available here in PAL format…otherwise would have LOVED to join this month to share and learn more from other movie/film buffs who are as PASSIONATE about their foods as I am!
The last scene made a lasting impression on me! :)
If you could provide a list of dishes to me via email, I can incorporate them in a review of this wonderful pick of movies this month!
Cheers! Joanne

This sounds like SUCH a fun movie, and I absolutely cannot wait to watch it. Now, if only I can get my hands on a copy. I may have to break down and order one from Amazon, as I haven’t found one anywhere else.

Thanks so much for hosting this month! :)
