If you love food and you hate plot and character development, then boy is this the right movie for you.  Chef could just as easily have been titled Things Jon Favreau Likes; it’s less a movie than a catalog of its director’s favorite music, favorite cities, favorite actors, and – most importantly – favorite dishes.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen a movie so stubbornly shapeless and digressive – but there’s a lot of charm to the proceedings, and so, in its own odd way, it kind of works.
