I love movies and I love baking… this means I definitely love movies with bakers!
This list is for the nights that you want to curl upon the couch with some tea and a good film. There is my list of loveable bakers from film/tv who will bake their way into your heart. I assure you that you’ll be inspired to cook something after watching these movies.
Did your favourite fictional baker make the list?
Sabrina Fairchild from “Sabrina” (1954)
Sabrina Fairchild is sweet, funny and hopelessly in love with the rich bosses’ son. She is the daughter of the chauffeur and she is sent off to culinary school in Paris to become a cook for the wealthy family her father works for. Sabrina eventually returns from Paris and is transformed into a cultured and sophisticated woman, who is determined to win the heart of the man she loves.
Sabrina stars Audrey Hepburn, Humphrey Bogart and William Holden. It’s easily one of my favourite films of all time! Sabrina is a cute , sweet romantic comedy for lovers of old hollywood film.
But let’s be honest here, there real hero of the movie is this dress… *SWOON*
Amanda Shelton From “Simply Irresistible” (1999)
I am a 90s girl through and through! I l adore Sarah Michelle Gellar, I remember the first time I watched Buffy and thought she was the MOST BEAUTIFUL WOMAN I HAVE EVER SEEN!
Amanda Shelton (Sarah Michelle Gellar) is a terrible cook who so is struggling to keep her restaurant afloat. She finds a magical crab who gives her cooking super powers that allows the people who eat her food to feel her emotions. OKAY! Okkkk ….. Now after typing that short description of the film, it made me realize it’s not actually a ‘good’ film. BUT it’s great for 90s nostalgia factor #SMG4ever
BTW THIS LOOK IS EVERYTHING-
Juila Child/ Juile Powell from “Juila & Juila” (2009)
So… Juila Child and Juile Powell aren’t fictional characters but they are both amazing cooks. Meryl Streep is a flawless queen. And her portrayal of Juila Child is so damn adorable, I just can’t even! I love this movie mainly because Juila Childs’ love and passion for food is simply infectious.
Juile & Juila is feel good film about cooking and self discovery. This movie intertwines the story lines of Juila Child ( Meryl Streep) and Juile Powell (Amy Adams).But the highlight of this movie is the beautiful relationship between Paul and Juila Child! #relationshipgoals.
Ana Pascal from “Stranger than Fiction” (2006)
Maggie Gyllenhaal plays Ana Pascal a badass tax evading baker. She is the love interest of the main character Harold Crick (Will Farrell) a boring tax auditor. I actually was not a fan of Will Farrell until I watched this film. This movie is not really about food or cooking but it’s a quirky weird film, but you should probably just watch it just for this scene, BECAUSE IT IS THE CUTEST THING TO HAPPEN TO A BAKER! *DIES*
Jenna Hunterson From “Waitress” (2007)
Kerry Russel plays Jenna Hunterson, who is a waitress trapped in an unhappy marriage. Jenna makes amazing pies with quirky names inspired by her life, such as ‘Bad Baby Pie” and ” I hate my husband pie”. She finds out she’s pregnant and falls into an saucy affair with her doctor (Nathan Fillion).
Waitress is such an underrated film, if you haven’t seen it, I urge you to!! It’s a sweet, charming film and you’re probably going to want to bake a pie afterwards!
Ned a.k.a “The Pie Maker” from “Pushing Daisies”
Pushing Daisies is a short lived TV series, about this hottie named Ned who is the owner of a Pie eating establishment called the “Pie Hole”.. He bakes pies during the day AND HE SOLVES CRIMES AT NIGHT BY WAKING THE DEAD WITH HIS MAGIC TOUCH!
The Pie maker is my all time favourite fictional baker of ALL TIME!
BECAUSE HE LOOKS LIKE THIS…
AND HE MAKES PIES…
HE CARRIES AROUND A “BIG ROLLING PIN”…..
HE HAS EYES THAT PIERCE INTO YOUR SOUL….
HE OFFERS YOU PIES IF YOU’RE HAVING A BAD DAY….
HE ALWAYS WANTS YOU TO COME HOME!
HE CAN MAKE YOU MELT WITH SLIGHT SMIRK…
HE LOOKS HOT IN A VEST!
I HAVE NO CHILL WHEN IT COMES TO LEE PACE *FANS SELF*
There you have it. lovable bakers who will bake their way into your heart! Did your favourite baker make the list?!
