It has two significant named female characters, I think another couple have names as well, but they do not talk to each other. Like the real world of haute cuisine, it is a male-dominated movie.

Wow -- I haven't heard of the bechdel test, but I am glad to have a way to help me start to explain why I disliked this movie so much, and why it bothered me, as a feminist. The two main named female characters were so stereotyped and under-developed... they only wanted to advance/improve the protagonist's life (his career, his relationship with his son, his happiness). Barf.
