Burnt movie quotes tell the story of one brilliant chef who lost it all and is hell bent on redemption. The culinary comedy-drama was adapted into a screenplay by Steven Knight, based on a story by Michael Kalesniko. Directed by John Wells, Burnt opened in theaters on October 30, 2015.

In Burnt, Adam Jones (Bradley Cooper) began his career as a teenager in Paris working at the hottest restaurant in town. In following this dream of becoming a chef, however, Adam fell into drug use and made a lot of bad decisions, pissing off a lot of others (including Uma Thurman, Omar Sy and Alicia Vikander) in the process, not to mention torpedoing his career. So three years later when Adam looks to make his big comeback, he needs to tidy up some loose ends first.

With the goal of earning three Michelin stars, Adam gathers a kitchen staff (including Sienna Miller, Daniel Brühl and Matthew Rhys) and sets off to open the best restaurant in the world. With everything on the line, Adam must risk it all if he is going to redeem himself.

Burnt brings some levity to theaters which are already showing other great films such as The Last Witch Hunter, Suffragette, Bridge of Spies, and Goosebumps.

Adam Jones: Cooking is an expression of what? Tell me.
Helene: At it's best, of sustaining someone with love
Adam Jones: Adam Jones at Langham is now one of the most interesting places to eat.
Helene: What part of that don't you like, one of or interesting?
Adam Jones: I don't want my restaurant to be a place where you come and eat. We should be dealing in culinary orgasms. When's the last time you had an orgasm that was interesting?
Helene: Remind me never, ever to discuss food with you in public.
Adam Jones: People eat because they're hungry. I want to make food that makes people stop eating.
Helene: You're being stupid.
Adam Jones: Cooking is an expression of who we are and right now we're two stars, both of us. It's a two-star review. Now we can keep on cooking and be interesting but I want people to sit at that table and be sick with longing and I need you to do it with me.

While Helene makes pasta, Adam shares his vision for how he wants people to feel about his food. It's a cross between love and lust but either way, it sounds delicious.
