In this show, Fuji has been cooking some of his home recipes for the entire base and of course Gruber is trying to make a profit on the food selection. After Binghamton accidentally gets a taste of the delicious food, he wants the person that prepared the food to make a special dish for a visiting Admiral. But we all know that Fuji cannot be found out by Binghamton so the gang sends Tinker out as the person that prepared the food.

Well things go bad when Tinker knows nothing about cooking. With the Admiral arriving, Binghamton is at wits end to make sure the exotic food is prepared. McHale is going to have to come up with a plan.

There was just something missing from this episode. Once the plot was known to the viewer it seemed that the show slowed to a turtles pace and became uninteresting very fast. Just did not have the flair that was needed to make the show enjoyable. It seemed long for a thirty minute show.
