CHEF (movie)

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.

An average movie. If you like food (which I do) and locations in the US like Miami and New Orleans, you’ll probably enjoy this one (although the food is mostly unhealthy in the last half of the movie!). Got a bit laborious in the middle. Some good supporting roles from Dustin Hoffmann, Scarlett Johansson and Emjay Anthony. Good family movie. Wait for the DVD.
