“I’m not saying I’m a chef, but I could get a job in a kitchen now," says Favreau.

Jon Favreau, director of the Ironman series and writer/director/star of the upcoming film Chef, is at SXSW showing off his newfound culinary prowess.

  • M&Ms
  • Reese’s
  • Wasabi peas
  • Ruffles
  • Kit Kat

Favreau explains that Kogi chef Roy Choi came on as a consultant for the movie, and ended up co-producing the entire film. Choi taught Favreau a thing or two, and now, Favreau says,

“I’m not saying I’m a chef, but I could get a job in a kitchen now.”
