Chef Adam Jones (Bradley Cooper) had it all - and lost it. A two-star Michelin rockstar with the bad habits to match, the former enfant terrible of the Paris restaurant scene did everything different every time out, and only ever cared about the thrill of creating explosions of taste. To land his own kitchen and that third elusive Michelin star though, he'll need the best of the best on his side, including the beautiful Helene (Sienna Miller).Written by

Jean Luc, my mentor - the guy who gave me a chance as a chef - said to me it was God who created oysters and apples. And you can't improve recipes like that. But it is our job to try.
Being a young chef, I sure as hell tried. I spent ten years cooking in Paris and became head chef of Jean Luc's restaurant. I was good. Some nights I was almost as good as I thought I was. 999,696... 697... At least that's what I'm told. 698... 699... Then I destroyed it all. My devils chased me out ...

Burnt was a pretty good film about a recovering chef trying a comeback
This was the only one of the current movies playing at the cinema my friend works at that I hadn't seen yet that I was willing to watch. It was quite entertaining as it went along the narrative. Bradley Cooper plays a once-disgraced chef trying a comeback. So he goes to England where his former boss from France has another restaurant operating there and attempts to work for him again. He also gets some of his former crew back. Then there's a female chef (Sienna Miller) who also reluctantly agrees to work for him. That's because despite his recovery from various vices, he's still quite a jerk as my friend pointed out in the middle of the film. In summary, Burnt took a while but I was pretty entertained as was my friend. Oh, and nice reunion between Cooper and Miller from American Sniper.
