I’m a big believer that anyone can achieve their dreams simply by having the passion and love for what they do and I’m a huge lover of the Perth food truck scene so it was no surprises that I walked out of the advanced screening of CHEF last night absolutely inspired (scroll for synopsis & trailer).
For your chance to WIN 1 of 5 double passes to CHEF showing at Reading Cinemas Belmont 6:45pm this Wed 7/5, simply LIKE foodie cravings facebook page and COMMENT with your favourite Perth food truck. Competition closes Sun 4/5/14 noon and five winners will be announced on facebook later that day.
If you love your food and social media you too will love CHEF.
CHEF follows the temperamental Carl Casper, a prestigious name in the world of food who falls from grace and ends up starting his own food truck to recapture his flair, integrity and reconnect with his family. Casper was once a promising star in the culinary world, whose artistic aptitude has long been restrained by an overbearing restaurant proprietor (Hoffman). With his passion for cooking wilting, Carl’s career takes a turn for the worse, when a prominent food bloggers targets the uninspired Chef with a provocative review. Outraged by his comments, Carl takes to twitter and goes head to head with him in an online battle, which he unknowingly broadcasts to thousands of followers.
Disillusioned with his career and desperate to escape the social media circus that he inadvertently created, Carl agrees to accompany his ex-wife Inez (Vergara) and son to Miami. As his passion for cooking reignites, an opportunity to start up a food truck business presents itself and Carl begins to re-establish his artistic promise and at the same time, reconnect with his family.
I also loved that CHEF celebrated the influence of social media and how it can help establish small businesses. After the film, even my mum understood the power of twitter and how to tweet 🙂
CHEF is in cinemas Thursday 8 May – make sure you watch this foodie film on a full stomach! I left the cinemas with a major craving for cuban sandwiches last night 🙂 The original cuban sandwich recipe as featured in the film is shared on Huffpost Taste.
