Jon Favreau looks to be cooking on gas in the brand new trailer for Chef which has arrived online today. Collecting a wonderful mix of actors for his ingredients and throwing them all in a pan sorry, van together, the fella behind Iron Man and Iron Man 2 proves that he doesn’t need special effects and big explosions to make what appears to be a tasty looking film.

Directed by and starring Favreau, Chef follows Carl Casper, a culinary whiz who loses his job and hopes to make a name for himself with his mouth-watering recipes and a busted food truck. Calling in a few favours to help his new business, Carl quickly taps in to why he became a chef in the first place and reunites his broken family in the process.

Favreau looks to be going for the feelgood factor with this one and with the added sprinkle of Robert Downey Jr., Dustin Hoffman, John Leguizamo, Bobby Canavale, Scarlett Johansson and Sofia Vergara to the mix we could be in with a winner. Let it also be said, this could be one of the first films since Ratatouille that could have stomachs rumbling in cinemas, so it’s advised not to see Chef on an empty stomach when it gets served up in the UK, June 18.
