As writer, director and star, Jon Favreau pours passion and joy into this sweet comedy.

He plays a star LA chef who quits his job after a run-in with restaurant owner Dustin Hoffman and food critic Oliver Platt. 

But he rediscovers his love of cooking thanks to his ex-wife (Sofia Vergara) and her ex (Robert Downey Jr, a hoot), who help him acquire a decrepit food truck.

After some much-needed restoration, he takes to the road with his 10-year-old son (Emjay Anthony) and loyal pal John Leguizamo, where his mouth-watering dishes become a big hit.

Favreau is a joy and his warm-hearted generosity runs through this deliciously  funny, touching and mouth-watering treat.
