It appeared to me that the kitchen technical advising for this movie came from simply watching any two Emeril Live episodes. Specifically, to play a chef just put a white towel over one shoulder and when applying the final touches to a dish bend down putting your face nearly on the plate, close enough to breath all over the food, and act like you are in deep concentration or doing surgery. Although the story was not so much about the kitchen, and that may explain why I was not hungry after seeing it, I think it was concern about germs that I did not feel like going out to lunch. Maybe this towel on the shoulder and face in the food works as a Hollywood visual but does it really happen? Any other thoughts?
