|Chang, Puck and Choi|
he's been training and trailing Choi as research for his upcoming movie. Sure enough, he was (and he was Tweeting it out all night), and we had a chance to meet him right when he was up to his elbows in spot prawns. He looked and talked every bit of the part, even directing another young cook as to what to do with the pot of prawn heads he just finished cleaning. He said he's been working with Choi for several weeks already, but only after he got a little training with a French instructor on "mother sauces" and other important things upon Choi's recommendation. Although Favreau's been in the Kogi king's restaurants and on the trucks picking up tips for the tentatively titled Chef, which will begin shooting here in LA soon, having Puck on hand to add his expertise on how to properly sear salmon or make an omelet is...so money.
