It's the whitest movie ever made, but the kitchen in "It's Complicated," is pretty fantastic. http://interiormad.com...

That's exactly the kitchen that came to my mind.

I love the Weasley's kitchen in the Harry Potter movies, I know it's kind of lame, but it's such a loving and crazy family and the cooking/eating scenes were always so sweet.

Two, if you'll allow tv.
Mrs Bridges's kitchen in the original "Upstairs, Downstairs" where the lives of the servants played out, with Mr Hudson as paterfamilias.
Erica Barry's kitchen in "Something's Gotta Give." Maybe a cliche, but beautiful. Again, many scenes, but hard to beat the one where she discovers her daughter's half dressed older lover making a midnight kitchen raid and thinks he's an intruder.

LOVE the kitchen in Amelie (so much checkerboard!) And while it's not a real "set," Alfredo's little Parisian kitchen in Ratatouille is fantastic.

+1 for It's Complicated -- the garden comes with it too, right?
Practical Magic -- with the margaritas, obviously
The Holiday -- either the English cottage or the California house, I'm not picky

It has to be the kitchen in It's Complicated. Even though the idea is to have Steve Martin build her a new kitchen, the one that Meryl Streep already has is charming. Even including the refrigerator with the dent in it. According to what I have read, when the refrigerator was delivered to the set, the designers discovered that it had that little dent. Someone said "keep it, with three kids in the house it makes it more believable." The kitchen is funky but a true cook's kitchen. Making Croque Monsieur for Steve Martin was my favorite scene, other that the croissant scene in the bakery.
I also love the English cottage kitchen in The Holiday. This was another Nancy Meyers design, along with the kitchen in Something's Got to Give.

The Nancy Meyers' films kitchen sets (It's Complicated, Something's Gotta Give, The Holiday) are downright kitchen porn...not that there's anything wrong with that. But the Draper suburban kitchen in Mad Men strikes a chord - not that I'd want it now, but it really nails that time and place. Also, in Julie & Julia, the recreation of Julia Child's iconic kitchen is perfect.

Speaking of Nancy Meyers' films, I am so jealous of Diana's kitchen in Something's Gotta Give.

Cortina, Corrina w Whoopi Goldberg and Ray Liotta. I love the 50s aesthetic (other things not so much, like the sexism).

"Babette's Feast" the kitchen in a remote 19th Danish century village. Babette, a French refugee, prepares a sumptuous dinner for the puritanical community. Lots of stone, wood and fire!

Moonstruck! That old NY kitchen held so much family history. My favorite was when Olympia Dukakis made breakfast for Cher after her night on the town with Nicholas Cage: hole in the bread, fried egg and roasted red peppers.

The old PBS series "The Duchess of Duke Street" had a turn of the century kitchen that "produced" great French cuisine.
