Did you see the new movie Chef by Jon Favreau? My friends and went to an special screening last week with Food & Wine magazine. I had seen the Top Chef episode last season where Jon stars and the challenge revolved around food trucks, so I was really excited to see it. The movie, about a Chef who quits his restaurant job and opens a food truck, was adorable, hilarious, and heartfelt - definitely recommend!
Jon Favreau spoke on the May 23 installment of Dinner Party Download talking about his love of film and food. One of my favorite lines...
As young as I can remember, food was a topic of interest in my family ... Food was always a lubricant for conversation and something that brought people together.
Isn't that the truth!
Read or listen to the whole interview here.
PS: Dinner Party Download in general is a great website to start following.
PPS: Oh, and we met Gail & Tom from Top Chef! :)
