For all you Rico Suave cook types, the meal that John Favreau made to sensually seduce Scarlett Johansson in the movie Chef was just released!
In a related report by The Inquisitr, the movie Chef opened to rave reviews, and we were able to get two exclusive interviews with two of their stars: Jon Favreau and John Leguizamo. Prior to their roles in the popular food truck film, Favreau was playing "Happy" in the Iron Man Trilogy and is set to direct the live version of the Disney film, The Jungle Book. John Leguizamo had fun playing his part in the popular buddy-buddy cop film starring Ice Cube and Kevin Hart, Ride Along.
The cooking blog Food & Wine wrote an article titled "How to Seduce Scarlett Johansson with Spaghetti." For those who seen Chef already, Favreau plays Casper, the head chef at a restaurant who can't seem to get a break with his ingenuity, and Johansson plays Molly, the hostess of the restaurant Casper works at. It is established that they are both attracted to each other but mutually agree not to pursue their longing for each other. Therefore, they blow off the steam from their emotional tension in other ways. Casper does it with cooking.
This is best expressed in the scene when Molly is waiting provocatively in bed while Casper prepares a meal that resembles a simple spaghetti dish. Once it is ready to serve, he gives a serving to Molly who expresses sheer ecstasy once she tastes the flavors in her mouth. I know it is overkill on the details but it helps sell the point. And now, the recipe for the dish, called Pasta Aglio e Olio (with Garlic and Oil), is available. I provided the recipe below.
We can thank famous chef Roy Choi, who created all the film's dishes, for this spaghetti recipe. Choi calls the dish "transcendence through a handful of ingredients" and makes it every Sunday night at home. Favreau personally asked for it for the film so that Casper could impress Molly. Choi allows it and simply states:
"He knew it would get her where he wanted her."
Now the title's claim by itself sounds unrealistic, but according to Men's Health, food is considered one of the top methods to seduce your woman. Add that along with wine and conversation, it could lead to something far more romantic. The article even says the mating game usually begins at the dinner table.
