One of my favourite cartoon chefs is Chef Louis from the Little Mermaid. He is an eccentric French chef that has an incredibly hot temper and doesn’t believe in mistakes being made. He is often found working hard over his Lincat SLR6 Silverlink 600 4 Burner Gas Oven like the ones you can find at www.247cateringsupplies.co.uk/lincat-slr6-silverlink-600-4-burner-gas-range-oven creating some masterpiece for the royal household.
He is a character that people can visualise when you mention his name. He is a stout short man with a large brown moustache and can be seen always wearing a yellow shirt with a red bow-tie, black trousers and a white chef’s hat and apron. He loves nothing more than creating spectacular dishes for the family and likes to think of his specialism as fish and seafood. His biggest hate is when his sea-based ingredients are still alive and wandering around his kitchen. This is where his dislike for Sebastian first appears.
Chef Louis is not one of the major characters in any of the Little Mermaid films, but he does create some create tension and comic relief as well. We first meet him in the original Little Mermaid film when he is cooking away happily in his kitchen, dancing around chopping the heads of fish and stirring his huge pot of ingredients. Sebastian enters the kitchen to hide away but unfortunately, Louis finds him and is determined to make a beautiful crab dish from him. Sebastian manages to escape, and hilarity ensues as the two characters dart around the kitchen knocking over numerous items include a large pot which falls onto Louis’s foot. Poor Louis also ends up burning his hand on a stove and Sebastian also pinches him on the nose. This does nothing to help Louis’ anger towards the little crab.
The duo comes across each other once again at the end of the film when Louis brings out Eric and Aerial’s beautiful wedding cake that has been lovingly created by the chef and is wheeled out on display to everyone on board Eric’s ship. Whilst basking in his achievement Louis looks up to see Sebastian on top of the cake. A chase is then inevitable. This time it ends in disaster as Sebastian cuts a rope that leads to a beam hitting Louis square in the face and knocking all but two of teeth out.
