I’ll be honest with you: you won’t easily find a more enthusiastic Trekkie – I’ve seen even the bad movies hundreds of times, and I’ve watched just about every episode of the series to date.

The Chef aka ‘Le Chef’ – A Film About Food

Written by Neil Gow on . Posted in food

The Chef, starring Jean Reno and Michaël Youn, is a French comedy directed by Daniel Cohen. Reno plays Alexandre Lagarde, a veteran chef who clashes against his restaurant group’s new CEO, who wants the establishment to lose a star from its rating in order to bring in a younger chef who specialises in molecular gastronomy.

The film weaves around and through a number of interesting themes and effectively uses the humorous backdrop of the plot to both challenge and poke fun at the current reality, practices and beliefs of contemporary high-end gastronomy.

Anthony Bourdain – No Reservations

No Reservations is a food and travel program combined into one. In it the host Anthony Bourdain travels to, explores and eats at different places around the world. The focus of the show is primarily food and travel but it is the people and the culture behind each place that is conveyed through the story of food, that makes it so interesting.
