Beware Sharp Knives And Even Sharper Tongues...
Meet Britain's finest -- and most ill-tempered -- chef, Gareth Blackstock (Lenny Henry), of the prestigious Le Chateau Anglais restaurant. Each meal is a masterpiece. Just don't ask for salt. Chef Blackstock rules his kitchen with an iron ladle and puts up with no slacking. The trouble is that his underpaid and overworked kitchen staff is littered with slackers. Tuck in and prepare to double over in laughter with this hilarious and much loved comedy series from the BBC!
Editor's Note
The BBC has a well-deserved reputation for producing timeless comedy classics, and they've done it again with CHEF! Starring Lenny Henry, who has appeared in many groundbreaking British comedy productions since the 1980s, CHEF! sees him playing an overbearing head chef, Gareth Blackstock, who works in the kitchen of a posh restaurant called Le Chateau Anglais. Grappling with his staff whose collective enthusiasm for the job wanes with every passing second, Gareth's attempts to motivate his workers and keep the restaurant's reputation afloat result in some hilarious scenes. The entire third season is collected here.

Professional Reviews

The Onion AV Club 6 of 10
Given the genial, enjoyable nature of the show, it's likely that anyone giving Henry a second chance will warm to his talents. It should also be clear that it's HenryƑin the role of a harried master chef nearly as uncompromising in his pomposity as he is in his artistic integrity--and his talented supporting cast who make the show interesting, rather than the material itself. With its telegraphed jokes and stock situations, Chef! hardly breaks new ground... - Keith Phipps
