5 Best Cooking Themed Hallmark Movies

As Hallmark fans know... the answer to many problems in a Hallmark movie is... hot chocolate! Hallmark fans also love their food and cooking themed movies. So many fun and yummy Hallmark movies to view it is difficult to narrow the field to just five movies. But here it goes, my top 5 favorite Cooking Themed Hallmark movies.

1. Cooking With Love

Lights, camera and conflict; well, romantic conflict of course this is a Hallmark movie. Alie Liebert and Brett Dalton comprise the TV producer and temperamental chef turned cooking show host with an easy rom com repertoire. Enjoy the witty comments between the leads as they navigate the foodie journey.

2. Truly Madly Sweetly

This cooking rom com movie scores on every Hallmark movie scorecard! Dylan Neal and Nikki DeLoach two favorite Hallmark leads unite for witty banter, rom com fun and Hallmark chemistry as they co inherit a small town bakery and where the baking journey leads.  These Hallmark stars do not disappoint!

3. The Secret Ingredient 

What happens when you are unexpectedly competing with your ex fiancée in a baking competition? Valentine's Day theme? Brendan Penny and Erin Cahill make a very believable rom com team in this cross between Top Chef, Top Baker and Hallmark Romance movie.

4. The Sweetest Christmas

Two High School sweethearts  meet up years later - will the romance be rekindled? Lacey Chabert finds herself competing in a gingerbread house sculpture contest with a little help from her old sweetheart Lea Coco a restaurant owner. Cute chemistry, cute theme, cute Hallmark movie!

5. You're Bacon Me Crazy

Two dueling food truck chefs compete and the bacon is aflying! Michael Rady and Natalie Hall lead their food trucks through the paces in what could be a life changing competition. Foodie and food truck aficionados will appreciate the storyline.

Bonus Hallmark Foodie Movies

Vineyards across the land are an integral backdrop to quite a few Hallmark movies. And what goes well with wine... food of course! So while not necessarily cooking themed, the following movies feature wine, romance and gorgeous scenery along with more than one meal!

In The Vineyard Collection:

  • Summer In The Vineyard
  • Autumn In The  Vineyard
  • Valentine In The Vineyard

  1. What fun for foodies and fans of Hallmark movies. I think I saw 'The Secret Ingredient'. Any Hallmark movie is a treat, but these cooking-themed movies would be especially fun to watch. Thanks for compiling this group of movies, Tracey.

  2. As a fan of The Food Network, Hell’s Kitchen, Top Chef and other cooking and baking shows and competitions, I’m sure I would enjoy these Hallmark food-themed movies. Thanks for the recommendations!

  3. Since I enjoy cooking, the Hallmark cooking movies have the extra ingredient that makes me love the Hallmark romantic comedies surrounding cooking competitions, bakeries, restaurants, and cook-offs. Adding that fun, romantic "spice" to movies, always makes them blue ribbon winners for me. Love them all! Thanks for featuring several of my previous Hallmark movie reviews.

  4. What a great list of Hallmark movies. I think I have seen a few of them and a few are new to me. Off I go to check out when they will be showing.

  5. My mom would have watched every one of these movies - light, clean, and relaxing - When I see these movies, I think of her. Especially cooking movies.

  6. I have not seen any of these Hallmark food themed movies but they sound like lovely relaxing fun films to watch this winter! Thank you for your review and recommendations
