A chef who loses his restaurant job starts up a food truck in an effort to reclaim his creative promise, while piecing back together his estranged family. 

Chef is written, directed by and starring Jon Favreau, along with a whole bunch of very talented people such as: John Leguizamo, Bobby Cannavale, Emjay Anthony, Scarlet Johansson, Dustin Hoffman, Sofia Vergara, Oliver Platt and Robert Downey Jr. Do you like food? Because food looks very good in this movie. It's a good movie, not only because I have an interest in cooking. I do love food and always liked to cook thanks to my mum mainly. It's a great comedy with what everyone calls "food-porn" and very good music. Chef displays people who really know what they're doing in a kitchen. It has an awesome way to make you feel as if you were in the kitchen, showing you what it's like to go to different places on this food truck, to experience different cultures, different music and of course the food. Plus, characters seem so real. Jon Favreau did an incredible job at capturing characters, dialogues, situations and scenes that did not feel set up or fake. In fact, dialogue flaws as if you were watching a documentary. The relationship between Favreau's character  and his son is very sweet and endearing. He also really surprised me as an actor, it's by far his best performance, he was simply great. John Laguizamo does a good job as a supporting character he ads a lot of comedy to the movie. Finally, people that Favreau brings from Iron Man movies were pretty good in their scenes as well. 

Overall Chef feels really good with awesome food that just make your mouth watering. Advice: go see it with a full stomach! Maybe the best film evolving around cooks that I've seen in a long time.
