Chef was the story of a celebrity chef who buys a food truck and drives it across the southern United States after his career implodes. Jon Favreau really seems to have found his footing again, much like his character, in returning to the simple movies that made him famous in the first place.
Not only that: the food was amazing. This is not a film you should see hungry. And now if you live in LA there’s an outside chance you won’t have to because Favreau and Chef Roy Choi (consultant on the film) want to open a real EL Jeffe.
