Chef (2014)

Directed by
Jon Favreau

Jon Favreau's feel-good foodie comedy-drama stars the writer-director alongside Dustin Hoffman, Sofia Vergara and Scarlett Johansson. Carl Casper was a sensation when he began his career as a chef, his mouth-wateringly inventive menus and infectious enthusiasm quickly securing him the top job in a swanky Californian restaurant. However, Carl's boss is less interested in innovation than in maintaining the reputation of his signature dishes. And when an influential critic says Carl's cooking is dull, the review causes a high-profile row and Carl to be sacked. Encouraged by a former colleague and supported by his rich ex-wife and her ex-husband, Carl turns his back on restrictive high-end regimes and instead sets up a food truck in Miami. The new venture reignites his love of cooking and allows him to bond with his estranged son, as they and his co-chef buddy Martin drive the truck back to California, gaining acclaim wherever they stop along the way.
