Chef 114 min. r
a top chef is being held back by his conservative boss, only for a food critic to push his buttons and send him into meltdown mode. chef carl and his son then buy a food truck, head to miami and not only make great food together, they also bond. Why it’s hot: the humour, the script, the food – all amazing. and the cast is pretty decent too: jon favreau (happy in the iron man movies, 2008-2013) plays carl and sofía vergara (gloria in modern family, 2009-current) plays his ex-wife inez. jon’s bff robert downey jr pops up, as well as scarlett johansson, oliver platt and dustin hoffman. tasty viewing.
