Within the first episode of “The Chef Show,” which premiered Friday, Favreau and chef Roy Choi (who taught Favreau the way to prepare dinner for his 2014 movie “Chef”) determine to prepare dinner a dish known as a Pepper Pot with Favreau’s pal Paltrow.
In the course of the section, Paltrow asks Favreau what the hell his new cooking present is all about. Favreau responds that he actually doesn’t know, and that he and Choi “started just filming” themselves cooking whereas he and Paltrow had been in Atlanta taking pictures “Spider-Man: Homecoming.”
By the mere point out of Spider-Man, nonetheless, issues begin to take a pleasant flip when Paltrow can’t appear to recollect ever being on that set.
“Yeah, well, we were in ‘Spider-Man’ together,” Favreau says. “Remember we were on ‘Spider-Man’?”
“We weren’t in ‘Spider-Man,’” Paltrow responds.
Favreau insists that she was.
“No,” Paltrow pushes again. “I was in ‘Avengers.’”
“No, you were in ‘Spider-Man’ also,” Favreau says as Choi seems to be on, seemingly amused by Paltrow’s bewilderment.
