[Movie Review] CHEF – All Foodies Must Watch This June 4, 2014

Chef is a very delicious movie.  I am not kidding! If only I can consume all the inviting and tantalising food whipped up by Chef Carls Casper (Jon Favreau), the main lead of this comedy.  The talented chef in the movie also directed, co-produced and written the script.  Being a food lover, a food blogger and one that extensively uses social media such as a blog, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, the movie resonates very strongly because I can relate to a lot of the scenes in the movie.

Unhappy with the restaurant owner (Dustin Hoffman) who stifle his creativity to cook up a storm with a new menu for a food blogger visit to review the restaurant that resulted in a less than mediocre review by the esteemed food blogger, Carls Casper decided to call it quits at the restaurant which he has been working for 5 years.  Encouraged by his ex-wife (Sofia Vergara), he decided on a trip to Miami with his son. With some twists of event, he decided to start a mobile food truck in the hope to reignite his culinary passion.  He was joined by the recently promoted Sous Chef in the old restaurant, who quit and decided to work under his leadership and share a common adventure at the food truck named El Jefe serving a type of Cuban sandwich – Cubanos.  They were joined by Chef Carl Casper’s son who trudged along and helped with the marketing of the food truck through social media like Twitter and Facebook with astounding success.
