wikipedia
When Chef Carl Casper suddenly quits his job at a prominent Los Angeles restaurant after refusing to compromise his creative integrity for its controlling owner, he is left to figure out what's next. Finding himself in Miami, he teams up with his ex-wife, his friend and his son to launch a food truck. Taking to the road, Chef Carl goes back to his roots to reignite his passion for the kitchen -- and zest for life and love.

Our Take

8.1
Freddie V-N

A popular chef loses his job and respect after a bad review. He ends up with a food truck and tries to show the world he still has his creative side, while at the same time trying to fix his broken family. Chef is a heartwarming feel-good movie, after you finish it you will want to cook, love your family, travel, and spread the love. One of my favorite movies, I see myself happily watching it again numerous times.

What a pleasant surprise. My mood was instantly lifted. Love the way they used social media to connect the father and son. Jon Favreau….you’re growns up.

It was good. The only cringe worthy moments were when they were pushing the social media thing too hard. At some moments it looked I was watching a very long Twitter commercial.
