Superb Movie
9 August 2011 | by torrencemysSee all my reviews

I just loved this film! To watch them all grow together within one year and just become outstanding chefs is just a pleasant sight! I'm a culinary enthusiast and to watch Ms. Stephenson in action with those students just says that she's all about her job.

Ms. Fatoumata just made me smile the entire way through. Her passion about education and strive to continue on with her life despite her father's opinion just shows that she's a strong woman of integrity.

Ms. Erica's love for her family, more so her little sister, just puts into perspective that she will continue to fight for her beloved ones and her future.

Last, but certainly not least, Mr. Tyree. This All-Star High School football player and cheerleader has gone to great heights. For him to put forth his maximum effort into everything he has done without the fear of his peers, has touched me tremendously. Certainly not one to fool with on the field nor in the kitchen, he has marked a spot for his success.

I know Chef/Sergeant Wilma Stephenson and her crew has made this film in 2007 and its now 2011, I wonder how each of you are doing. Once again, the film was amazing. And hope to see you all back on the big screen in the upcoming years.

God Bless you all and be safe.
