The God of Cookery (1996)

Hong Kong 92m, Colour
Director: Stephen Chow; Cast: Stephen Chow, Karen Mok, Vincent Kuk, Ng Man-tat, Lee Siu-Kei, Tats Lau

A master chef martial arts mash-up, The God of Cookery is an over-the-top slapstick satire about the downfall of a corrupt celebrity chef who redeems himself and regains former glory after learning secrets of Kung fu cooking at a Shaolin Monastery. As with Chow’s other hilarious films, The God of Cookery is filled with regionally specific references which do not always translate for a Western audience. There is, however, more than enough comedy to go around in this absurdly funny film (Klaus Ming March 2017).
