Cookbook Recipe
CHEF the Film: Mojo Pork Cubanos
Food, fatherhood and fame were a recipe for disaster for Carl Casper, our hotshot L.A. chef who’s burnt out and tired of compromise in the kitchen. After waging a war on Twitter with an influential restaurant critic, Carl’s life takes a dramatic turn that forces him to start over rediscover why he became a chef in the first place. The following recipe for Mojo Pork Cubanos helped Carl turn a dilapidated taco truck into a gastronomic sensation on wheels. This delectable Cuban-inspired variation on the classic ham and cheese sandwich got its start in Florida, where Carl renews his culinary career and life journey. Check out the recipe and the film to taste/see for yourself! This is an official recipe created for and made in the film "CHEF" by Chef Roy Choi. For more info, visit chefthefilm.com.

Cookbook Recipe
CHEF the Film: Mojo-Marinated Pork Shoulder
Martin (our lovable line cook and sidekick) witnessed Carl’s flameout in the kitchen and decided to join his idol’s culinary road trip. While traveling to iconic food destinations across the southern U.S., John helps master the following recipe for Mojo-Marinated Pork Shoulder, which is immersed in a marinade of garlic, citrus and herbs. Give it a try and bask in the authentic Cuban flavor (albeit with a minty twist). This is an official recipe created for and made in the film "CHEF" by Chef Roy Choi. For more info, visit chefthefilm.com.

Cookbook Recipe
CHEF the Film: Tostones with Chile Vinegar
As his ex-wife, Inez helps encourage Carl to start over by coming to Miami and spending some long overdue time with his son. When Carl arrives the stage is set for a culinary reawakening infused with multicultural flavors, such as this savory recipe for Tostones (fried plantain slices). This is an official recipe created for and made in the film "CHEF" by Chef Roy Choi. For more info, visit chefthefilm.com.

Cookbook Recipe
CHEF the Film: Berries n Cream
Young but wise beyond his years, Percy adds a big spoonful of sweetness to the El Jefe menu. The road trip gives him a chance to finally spend quality time with dad as they cook their way across the U.S. Along the way he tries all sorts of spicy foods for the first time, yet still manages to serve up this super-sweet recipe for berries with cream. This is an official recipe created for and made in the film "CHEF" by Chef Roy Choi. For more info, visit chefthefilm.com.

Cookbook Recipe
CHEF the Film: Yucca Fries with Banana Ketchup
Before she was with Carl, Inez was married to Marvin - a successful Miami entrepreneur who ignites Carl’s creative juices by giving him the broken down old taco truck that will become El Jefe. The following recipe for Yucca Fries calls for ripened bananas that are peeled and chopped - terms that also describe the condition of the truck when Marvin first hands over the keys. This is an official recipe created for and made in the film "CHEF" by Chef Roy Choi. For more info, visit chefthefilm.com.
