Zone Pro Site: The Moveable Feast is the highly anticipated feature from master of comedy Chen Yu-Hsun, and one of the biggest box office hits in Taiwan this season.

More than 20 years ago, there were three outdoor banquet (ban-doh) master chefs who dominated the catering business in Taiwan. They were known as Master Silly Mortal, Master Ghost Head and Master Fly Spirit. However, the outdoor banquet business has been in decline since Taiwan’s economic takeoff, and even the master chefs feel helpless to turn the tide. Master Fly Spirit wants to pass the family recipes and culinary skills on to his only child, Wan, who desperately wants to run away from the family business to become a fashion model. Nevertheless, fate proves that Wan is destined to take up the challenge and mission she once shunned.

A hilarious mix of personalities comes together in hopes of reviving the tradition of the catering chef and the legacy of Master Fly Spirit. The resourceful cooking team discover a wide selection of magnificent, mouth-watering dishes and, more importantly, personal satisfaction when their food is truly enjoyed.
