This movie reminds me of The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover, which I found pretty distasteful (no pun intended):


I’m not much of a horror fan, but my impression is that horror has always been about “social malaise.” Have you seen George Romero’s Night of the Living Dead from 1968 and its sequels? Zombies and social commentary: they go together like red beans and rice.

Also, I believe it’s “sous-chef,” one of those goofy French-isms borrowed into English (probably by sophisticated diners).
