The other day I have seen “Chef” again, one of my favourite movies . It was written, produced, directed and played by Jon Favreau. I really recommend it.

In a scene, chef Carl Casper told the critic (who ruined his life) how is made properly the lava cake with the chocolate flowing out. I did’t try how the chef suggested in the movie yet but tried this recipe with Marcello, my friend from Tuscany. It was absolutely fantastic, complete with a delicious melting center  😉
