Famous Fictional Foodies

A couple of months ago I posted a thread on Yelp.com asking people to share their favorite fictional foodies. Mine has always been Grace Adler of Will & Grace; she is who I aspire to be.


Some of my favorite Grace moments involving food were:

Grace: Jews and chicken; it’s real and it’s deep.
Leo Markus: And my deepest, darkest secret is that I don’t like any food with raisins in but I do like raisins.

Grace Adler: See we already have a problem. I love raisins in everything. I even went to see “A Raisin In The Sun” because I thought there would be raisins in it!
Grace: Oh, my God. This was so delicious. I’ve been living with a gay guy for so long, I forgot what the skin of a chicken tastes like.

Some people mentioned the Crane brothers of Frasier but I think I have always been to uncouth/immature to enjoy them. Another person mentioned Tina Fey’s character on 30 Rock. Prior to reading that comment I had never watched the show but it is in fact brilliant and Liz Lemon is a great foodie icon.

Some of Liz Lemon’s greatest food moments can be found here or here:

“Once in college, I pooped my pants a little bit at a Country Steaks all-you-can-eat buffet and I didn’t leave until I finished my second plate of shrimp.


The time she used a wedding dress as a napkin.


“Ok fine, but I want a lobster. I want two lobsters! Totaling five pounds of lobster meat!”


I thought of this last night when I got back from Tokyo and I may have used the word lover with my boyfriend after my 9 hour flight. I then laughed and said, “On 30 Rock Liz (Tina Fey) tells Jack (Alec Baldwin), ‘I don’t like to hear the word “lover” unless it’s in between the words “meat” and “pizza.”’

That got me thinking, what other fictional foodies must I still learn about? Please tell me your suggestion in the comments section.

-I love Remy from Ratatouille but he is not an Uncouth Gourmand. Hell, he is a rat that walks upright so he can keep his hands clean for his food. A real UG eats with their feet if they have to.

-I also love that Jewish guy that plays Toni Collette’s husband in In Her Shoes. I said it once and I will say it again…

Okay I am off to a pizza party potluck and Josie (co-founder) is off to drinks at the Edison. We met at Panda Express for lunch today and have decided to blog until we get the business totally up and rolling.

Anyway, this is the first of many posts. Continue Reading…that’s an order!



  1. no love for remy of ratatouille! i understand, UG’s 🙂

  2. shaggy and scoob – no matter where the caper took them, there was always a kitchen with provisions for a sandwich (stacked accordion style).

  3. […] Second, we have almost had our blog up for 1 year and the very first post I wrote was entitled Famous Fictional Foodies. Third, I read this very interesting article regarding the type casting for the so-called Skinny […]
