Storyline

El Molcajete, a traditional Mexican food restaurant, downtown Mexico City, is owned by Maria's grandmother, Tere, and run by chef Rosi. After her daughter's death, Tere lost her passion for cooking and stopped working at El Molcajete. Therefore, Maria does everything to make her go back to the restaurant. Meanwhile, chef Rosi has introduced new dishes to the menu, trying to make it a light trendy cuisine. But neither Maria nor Tere will accept that the traditional flavors and cooking secrets fall into oblivion. Written by Jordi Mariscal
