Plot Summary

Eat Drink Man Woman is a classic tale of simmering frustrations and relationship woes as semi-retired Master Chef Chu shares his culinary skills and tends to his three unmarried daughters' respective emotional journeys. Jia-Jen is a chemistry teacher, Jia-Chien an airline executive and Jia-Ning works at a fast-food establishment.
