Hao's only hope is that his grandson Mark enters a prestigious university, but Mark's dream is to follow his grandfather's footsteps and become a chef and take over the family restaurant. Due to Hao's difficult personality, the restaurant is on the verge of bankruptcy and he finally collapses. In order to save the restaurant, Mark enters a cooking contest without his grandfather's knowledge and consent in Shanghai. He competes against talented chefs from Japan, Korea and Australia, and freely shows off ravishing cooking skills that he has accumulated from his grandfather over the years. As Mark wins round after round and gains attention, Julia, the contest producer notices something peculiar about him, then slowly realizes that Mark and her husband David resemble each other.Written by
I found this looking for food movies, and this is a great movie about food, but it is so much more. This movie is about the complexities of family, how one generation always wants the next to have it better, and how that can lead to problems, and mistakes made on both sides. This movie is also about overcoming those mistakes, and being able to move forward as a family. This is a great movie, and I would recommend it to anyone.
