DIRECTOR: STEPHEN CHOW

CAST: STEPHEN CHOW, KAREN MOK, NANCY SIT

Arrogant celebrity chef Chow loses everything after he’s unmasked as a talentless imposter and banished into obscurity—now he must learn his craft anew in order to redeem himself and reclaim the “God of Cookery” throne, squaring off against the foes who humiliated him in an over-the-top Iron Chef-style kitchen showdown. A delicious culinary kung fu comedy rave-up, with hysterical supporting work from Karen Mok as homely food stall owner/life coach “Turkey,” and an unbeatable recipe for Explosive Pissing Beef Balls. “Before there was Shaolin Soccer or Kung Fu Hustle there was The God of Cookery. Imaginative and hilarious. A day didn’t go by on the set of Iron Chef America that I didn’t think about this film.”—Alton Brown
