WARNING! If you watch this movie hungry there is a guarantee of stomach growling but also having a new favorite movie… so, worth it. This movie is definitely one of my favorites. Following your passion and making it work is the essence of Chef. If you’re not happy, fly across the country and buy a food truck. Ok, maybe not that specifically, but chase your passion, whatever it is.
Jon Favreau is a brilliant chef who once was on the cutting edge of the culinary world but is now pigeonholed in a restaurant that stifles his creativity. He then decides to take a huge risk in order to reignite his passion for cooking. But let’s be honest, if Sofia Vergara was telling me I should do something, that’s pretty good motivation already!
First time I saw this, I took a chance on it in the theaters, not having heard much about it. The risk was greatly rewarded. Chef has cemented itself as one of my top choices. It’s a feel good movie that’s got all the goods: delicious food, lively Latin culture and music, and lovable characters.
GMBM Verdict : I’ll take the Chef’s special please! Good Movie!
