21 September, 2017
Long before Bridesmaids made her an international star, Melissa McCarthy dipped into the world of amateur cooking competitions with a role in an hilarious mockumentary called Cook-Off.
Now, 10 years, later the film is finally getting a limited theatrical release,Eater reports, hitting theatres on 17 November and then iTunes.
The film follows a cast of extreme characters as they face off in an amateur cook off, in the pursuit of a one million Dollar grand prize.
There are plenty of hiccups, sabotage and emotional breakdowns along the way and from the trailer this film looks a riot of fun, and if you’ve ever competed in a real-life cook-off, you’re sure to recognise some of the characters here.
Staff shortages are hitting the hospitality sector hard, prompting some restaurants to look outside the industry to train those without restaurant experience for life in the kitchen. Andrew Friedman finds out more.
