Oh well, if we are talking significant food scenes in otherwise 
non-foodie shows...

Pie fight in THE GREAT RACE
Three Stooges shorts, in which the boys find work as fry cooks or waiters
Star Trek Voyager, which has a character who appoints himself the ship's 
chef and hilarity frequently ensues.  Such as the deathless line:  "Take 
this cheese to sickbay!"  ["Learning Curve," wherein Neelix' homemade 
cheese with some iffy microbial content that winds up threatening the 
ship.  My cheese has never done that at least!]
Soupy Sales and every other comic who ever got a pie in the face.  
Mmmm.  Pie.

Heading off for KWHSS now, back Sunday,
