Movie dishes , Aglio e Olio. (Scarlett’s pasta)

17 Apr

With the world in lockdown due to covid19. Times are unpredictable but to keep my mind sane whilst staying in isolation, I’ve decided to do a series of recipes from foodie films starting with something easy but just mouthwatering from the movie “Chef”

Mollys ( Scarlettt Johansson) Pasta

“Aglio e Olio “ made with just a few ingredients it’s just sex on a plate!

Chef Carl Casper (Jon Favreau) suddenly quits his job at a prominent Los Angeles restaurant after refusing to compromise his creative integrity for its controlling owner (Dustin Hoffman), he is left to figure out what’s next. Finding himself in Miami, he teams up with his ex-wife (Sofia Vergara), his friend (John Leguizamo) and his son to launch a food truck. Taking to the road, Chef Carl goes back to his roots to reignite his passion for the kitchen — and zest for life and love.
