Mystery abounds when it’s discovered that, one by one, the greatest chefs in Europe are being killed. The intriguing part of the murders is that each chef is killed in the same manner that their signature dish is prepared. Food critics and the (many) self-proclaimed greatest chefs around Europe demand the mystery be solved! You’ll laugh through this comedy, mystery, crime caper. The Friend’s license does not allow them to publicize the name of the film, but you can call the library to find out. And, yes, they will have popcorn!
