With Neighbors releasing this weekend, Godzilla releasing next, and X-Men: Days of Future Past arriving the week after that, not to mention The Amazing Spider-Man 2 still swinging around theatres, Jon Favreau’s Chef runs the risk of getting lost in the blockbuster shuffle. However, if there’s one film you see this summer, it should be the director’s upcoming indie flick, which sees him return to his roots and deliver one of 2014’s most enjoyable moviegoing experiences.
In Chef, Favreau plays Carl Casper, the titular cook who’s fired from his job at a prestigious restaurant. Hoping to re-ignite his passion for cooking, he starts a food truck and embarks on a cross country journey with his son and longtime friend. It’s a movie full of laughter, heart, excellent performances and some damn good food. There’s something for everyone here and I cannot recommend it enough.
Today, Open Road released a new TV spot for Chef and it features some absolutely mouth-watering footage. There’s also a couple of critic quotes thrown in, including one from our very own Matt Donato, who gave the film an excellent review back when it premiered at SXSW.
Check out the new spot below and be sure not to miss Chef, we promise you that it will satisfy your tastebuds.
