CHEF Movie

It’s been awhile since I’ve been this excited about a movie. But after seeing the trailer to Jon Favreau’s new movie CHEF, I was hooked on seeing it. One reason – food porn. I seriously was salivating as I saw the previews. Plus I was a cook for ten years in the restaurant business and I understand life in the kitchen. Cooking for me has always been both therapeutic and a passion. This is the story of Carl Casper, a cook in L.A. who is trying to rediscover his passion for cooking. He ends up going on road trip in a food truck with his son to get his passion to make amazing food back. The film ended up being a great movie and easily one of my favorite ones of the year. In addition to having a great cast, CHEF also has a great soundtrack. I ended up going with my favorite foodie friends that I love to eat out with. My friend Kim is a personal chef and my other friend Pete is (in my opinion) the top restaurant reviewer in Arizona. He and his wife Monica eat out at different restaurants all over the valley. We had a blast and I look forward to seeing it again!

Barro’s Pizza

Back in the 1930’s, Angelina Barro started cooking pizzas using the freshest ingredients in Chicago. Her sons have since opened up Barro’s restaurants all over America. There are many locations all over the Valley. I love what they do in the community and for kid’s sport leagues.

Barro’s Pizza is a long time favorite for the boys and I. We have been coming here after their sporting events and for family occasions since they were little. We even had a photo shoot here earlier in the year. It was Jake’s birthday and we had a little party here with his buddies from his church group. There was quite the turn-out and I literally watched these boys devour five pizzas. My Dad, sister and my nephews also joined in for the fun. Afterwards we saw “The Avengers”.
