In a seaside village in Spain, the teenager Sofía is a bad student that helps her father Ramón and her mother Loren in the kitchen of the small family restaurant and dreams on becoming the best chef in the world. Her best childhood friends are the correct Toni and the reckless Frank. When Sofía finds that Ramón is bisexual, she leaves her fiancé Toni to work with Frank in a five star hotel and has a one night stand with him. However, she returns to her village when she gets pregnant and marries Toni. Years later, Frank also returns to his village and Sofía loves Toni and Frank and they all live together as a threesome. Sofía cooks with passion and her top-notch culinary skill is recognized by other chefs. However, when Frank decides to get married and have a normal life, the relationship between Sofía and Toni is affected. Written by

Might have enjoyed this more on the stage as some kind of a farce but as a rom-com (or whatever it was supposed to be) it didn't work for me. Very jerky scenario which seems only to benefit the Keira Knightly lookalike without actually succeeding in making her a likable character. In fact all the characters were shallow and inconsistent and certain scenes intended to titillate the spectator appeared ridiculous rather than farcical (eg when one of her children walks into the bedroom).
The references to cooking and food added nothing to the storyline, when in fact they could have held the whole thing together.
On the other hand, the English subtitles were quite frankly hysterical (I think I laughed more at the subtitle boobies than I did at anything in the script). Grammatical errors, typos and spelling mistakes in every line.
