Chef is a 100% feel good film. It features amazing dishes , latin flavour and people who quit their job to follow their instinct. Who doesn't want to do that?

good film

Chef (Favreau, 2014) is a culinary comedy about chef Carl Casper who lives for his work. When a foodcritic writes a devastating review, Carl outs his frustrations on Twitter. He doesn't realize that everybody can read his message, which ultimately leads to a trending topic. His ex wife tips him to buy a foodtruck and return to his Miami roots: honest and simple food which makes people happy. He travels to Miami and New Orleans with his son and former colleague Martin and refinds his joy in cooking.

good food

Food plays a major part in this film and the dishes are varied and 'delicioso'. The food is a mix of French, Cuban and American cuisine and prepared with love (as in the film) and skills, and that's what you taste. Chef Roy Choi from Los Angeles was the culinary coach in this film, perfecting the dishes. Read the blog about Roy Choi here. Enjoy!

great timing

What you see, is what you eat. Timed exactly with the film. The culinary script of Cinema Culinair is leading for the chef and the service. Good film + good food + great timing. The clou is in the latter. An example. When Molly (Scarlett Johansson) eats spaghetti aglio & olio at 14 minutes and 51 seconds, we want our guests to taste exact the same thing. One minute sooner or later is the difference between a good and a fan-tas-tic experience. What matters is that you will not only see and hear the film, but also taste and feel it.

when is the next cinema culinair of this film?

Chef is one of our top favorites. Our goal is to show the film at least two weekends every year.

The film is appreciated 7,3 at IMDB.
Chef is the pet project of director and producer Jon Favreau. He earned lots of money with the Iron Man films and spent it on Chef. (But turned out to be so popular, that he earned it back.
