Carl Casper is an acclaimed chef with a family life that seems as decaying as his artistic freedom. Those frustrations boil over into a raucous viral-videoed public confrontation against a restaurant critic who panned his cooking of food that his boss ordered him to make against his instincts. Now with his career ruined, Carl's ex-wife offers an unorthodox solution in Miami: refit an old food truck to offer quality cooking on his own terms. Now with his young son, Percy, and old colleague, Martin, helping, Carl takes a working trip across America with that truck to rediscover his gastronomic passion. With Percy's tech savvy and Martin's enthusiasm, Carl finds that he is creating a traveling sensation on the way home. In doing so, Carl discovers he is serving up more than simply food, but also a deeper connection with his life and his family that is truly delicious in its own way.Written by

During the first truck stop, Martin says over the loud speaker "Best Cuban food in all of South Beach. If you need it more authentic swim 90 miles that way" indicating Cuba. Cuba is 90 miles away from Key West (famous for being the most southern point in America, 90 miles from Cuba). They clearly say just before and in the following scenes with the Police Officer that they are on South Beach, Miami, around 150 miles from Key West, and over 200 miles from Cuba. See more »
I can start by saying that Chef is a simple, light and satisfying comedy that despite not having a great script, conquer you by the charisma of the characters and by the good vibe of the movie, which shows a recognized head chef, who leaves his job in a restaurant after having his creative freedom denied, and starting a new business outside of the professional kitchen, taking advantage to narrow neglected family ties. We still have great performances from Scarlett Johansson, Robert Downey Jr. and Dustin Hoffman, in this written, directed and starring Jon Favreau movie.
