This is a light and fluffy but utterly charming little movie about a burnt-out chef who rediscovers his passion for cooking and life. Jon Favreau plays the star LA chef who quits his job, 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, Dustin Hoffman, Robert Downey Jr, etc – pop up in cameos. A deliciously sweet, funny, touching and mouth-watering treat is the result.
