It's my turn to host Food'N'Flix where we watch movies and head into the kitchen and cook or bake or make something based on a recipe they actually make in it or just something we were driven to make after watching it.
For April's round, I selected Chef. I watched the movie when it was released last year, but I'm excited to see what inspires all of you. There is so much from which to choose. I won't tell you too much...just that the main character is a chef in a high end restaurant. He leaves that job and starts his own business - in a food truck.
Here's a trailer...
If you’ve never seen Chef, you must. Really. Just watching him plate pasta is gorgeous. But all the food looks incredible. Jon Favreau does his own slicing, dicing, and cooking in the movie. It's impressive and inspiring. Just be sure to eat ahead of watching...or have dinner reservations right after, because you will want to eat some incredible food when the movie is over.
I watched it again last week when the house was quiet and all my boys were asleep. I pulled out a notepad and scribbled down some recipe ideas. What should I attempt? I haven't quite decided yet.
But I hope you'll join the fun. Watch the movie,then post about it on your blog with a link back to this post and to Food'N'Flix. Use of the logo is optional.
Your post must be current (during month of film). And of course we don't mind if your post is linked to other events...the more the merrier. Have fun with it!
