This week kicks off with a bunch of food and cooking titles from BBC Studios that are now available for streaming on IMDb TV in the US.


I don’t know about you, but I love it when a bunch of titles produced and/or distributed by BBC Studios hits one of the free streaming services all at once (or nearly), like these 60 drama movies, these 30 movies (mostly drama), and these 42 movies (ditto) on Prime Video.

While not as extensive as those lists, this one still numbers in the double digits, centers on food and cooking, and features some well-known names in the culinary arena, such as queen of the kitchen Mary Berry, food writer Rachel Khoo, and celebrity chef Rick Stein.
