Storyline

A very cute movie about a "want to stay single" very successful food critic that believes he finally finds the one he was looking for. As time of happiness moves on there are various real life sub plots that keep the mistakes in life coming back to what many might feel is destiny for what it should be at some point. It leaves that to the viewer's opinion at the end which I feel is an obvious but unanticipated conclusion. Written by Leslie Miles

Food is love
7 July 2014 | by abcvisionSee all my reviews

Oliver (Richard Coyle) in The Food Guide to Love is the ultimate foodie and food writer. As a kid, while others were cheering on their sports team, he was enjoying the tapas and fine cuisine at the snack table. He becomes a run away success in the way he describes the sensual aspect of food but has had a hard time translating that erotic magnetism into his relationships. After 6 months they burn out and he moves on to his next course. All is well until he comes across a hot fire Spanaird in Bibiana. She is an activist with a father's complex that sees through Oliver's frivolous ways. A foreign film that celebrates the joys of life and teaches us that along the way we much enjoy the banquet of life's joys. I believe this is a great film for anyone that wants to watch a good story.
