Chefs in Hollywood

A hub for serious foodies

Beverly Hills Ninja Chris Farley

It’s surprising this isn’t happening in every Teppanyaki restaurant. Properly done it’s an amazing sight, as is Chris Farley’s imitation here.


Thomas Keller and a dozen other chefs assisted in this movie. It’s how it’s supposed to be. Hollywood finally got it right!

Mads Mikkelsen

Apparently Anthony Bourdain’s favourite show at the moment. Some of the best cooking on a T.V show.

Edoardo Ballerini
Dinner Rush

This dish looks amazing and inspiring. It’s actually a ridiculous dish that no restaurant would sell due to such a high food cost.

Jon Favaro

This sums up what it means to be a chef in less than a minute. This was a brilliant movie.

Catherine Zeta Jones
No Reservations

The perfect crisp white uniforms and perfect make up are just a few of the reasons why this is one of the worst. The complaining customer is spot on though.

I Like Killing Flies Kenny Shopsin

The “chef” in this movie is tragic comedy. He has over 900 dishes on the menu and a list of rules for customers to follow.

Geena Davis
The Long Kiss Goodnight

O.K. after service and a few beers, an apprentice might sometimes try this. It usually results in a chipped knife blade.

Artie Bucco
The Sopranos

Still the best show ever. Any of the food scenes in The Soprano’s were so great. They even released a cookbook from it.

Ang Lee
Like Water for Chocolate

The realism of the cooking and the attention the food is given in this movie is brilliant. It becomes part of the scene instead of background props.

Big Night
Stanley Tucci

A favourite scene from a great movie about owning a restaurant. They actually cook and eat this food on film which is rare to see.

Jim Carey
Lemony Snickett

A classic dish that originates from being cooked and served to prostitutes, due to its quick preparation and low costs.
So long as you have food in your mouth, you have solved all questions for the time being.
Franz Kafka
