A “zone pro site” is a chef who shows up at an outdoor banquet with nothing but his cooking utensils, and comes up with a menu on the spot based on the banquet’s theme and the ingredients provided. He¬¬ is the original “Iron Chef.” This fictional fantasy focuses on several such struggling chefs as they develop recipes, rivalries and romances, culminating in national cooking contest. Mixing food porn with slapstick humor, this film contains flying knives, weird dancing, sighing romance, gangsters, feminism and open displays of bravado. Reminiscent of the classic food film Tampopo, Zone Pro Site will leave you laughing and hungry.
