The one thing that Chef achieves with certainty is to make you very hungry. There are scenes heaped with plates of artistic food and loads of yummy sandwiches and if it were not for the sound system in the theatre I swear you could have heard my stomach grumble.

The story is simple enough. Carl Casper is a chef who gets panned by a food citric His boss at the restaurant wont let him experiment with new foods so he goes and sets up a food truck which brings him personal satisfaction and also draws him closer to his family.

The dramatic action in the movie is not much. He fight with the restaurant owner happens fairly early in the movie so the rest id devoted to the food truck making its way through America. You keep waiting for something to go wrong but nothing does which is a bit of a dampener.

John Favreau (he is also the Director)as the chef has a very endearing and sincere energy about him, which makes him a very likeable character. Sophia Vergera as his estranged wife is hot and sweet both and Emjay Johnson as the son gives a maturity to his role beyond his years.

There is nothing to dislike about Chef really; the characters are good people, nothing goes drastically wrong, there is infectious Cuban music to keep your feet tapping and then all that wonderful food to make you head straight out and get yourself a treat. Watch it for a pleasant stress free experience.
