A captivating poetic show about food, memories and faded Michelin star-studded dreams. Chef tells the thrilling tale of how one woman went from working as head chef at a high-end bistro to running a prison kitchen as a convicted inmate. As chef plans the perfect seven course meal she reveals fragments from her jagged and complicated past. A charismatic and animated character, Chef’s tale is as much a lovesong to food as it is an engaging story about how the memories we choose to shelve always somehow end up back on our plate.
