Favreau on Choi

New, 1 comment

Chef writer/director Jon Favreau chats with Eater LA about how chef Roy Choi helped shape the film. Favreau recounts their first meeting, during which Choi professed that "when a chef sees a bag of shallots he gets excited because they know they're going to get to peel them all." Says Favreau: "And I was like, okay is that some sort of metaphor for something else or are you making a point? He literally meant it." [Eater LA]
