What's it about?

When Chef Carl Casper suddenly quits his job at a prominent Los Angeles restaurant after refusing to compromise his creative integrity for its controlling owner, he is left to figure out what's next.

Why do we love it?

The ultimate love letter to food and the art of cooking. A gorgeously made independent film with so much passion and joy, Chef mixes great music, food and characters and taps into a very personal side to filmmaking which creates a very intimate experience.
