100 Things we learned from film

Kirsty is back and she's bought us a sumptuous feast in the shape of 2014's love letter to selling food from a van. We learn about Cuban Sarnies, US Seatbelt Laws, Pigs heads and Sofia Vergara's West Yorkshire Heritage.


Chef is a 2014 American comedy-drama film written, co-produced, directed by, and starring Jon Favreau. Favreau plays a chef who, after a public altercation with a food critic, loses his job at a popular Los Angeles restaurant and begins to operate a food truck with his young son. It co-stars Sofía Vergara, John Leguizamo, Scarlett Johansson, Oliver Platt, Bobby Cannavale, and Dustin Hoffman, along with Robert Downey Jr. in a cameo role.

Favreau wrote the script after directing several big-budget films, wanting to go "back to basics" and to create a film about cooking. Food truck owner and chef Roy Choi served as a co-producer and oversaw the menus and food prepared for the film. Principal photography took place in July 2013 in Los Angeles, Miami, Austin and New Orleans.

Chef premiered at South by Southwest on March 7, 2014 and was released theatrically on May 9, 2014 by Open Road Films. It was well-received by critics, who praised the direction, music, writing, story, and performances, and grossed $46 million against a production budget of $11 million.
