This is a light and fluffy but utterly charming little movie about a burnt-out chef (Jon Favreau) who rediscovers his passion for cooking and life.
Favreau plays a star LA chef who quits his job after a row with restaurant owner Dustin Hoffman, acquires a food truck and takes to the road with his 10-year-old son (Emjay Anthony) and a loyal friend (John Leguizamo).
Also on writing and directing duties, Favreau has clearly poured monster portions of passion and joy into this project.
His warm-hearted generosity runs through the film, making it easy to see why so many of his famous friends – Scarlett Johansson, Robert Downey Jr, etc – pop up in cameos.
A deliciously sweet, funny, touching and mouth-watering treat is the result.
