Storyline

Siu Man is a nurse who has lost who she is as a person. Her marriage has ended partly due to her fear of intimacy and, having been abandoned by her husband, she now faces losing her father after he is hospitalised. Siu Man decides to reboot her life by taking over her father's restaurant but without the experience of being a chef, she has to hire someone. In steps Chia-hao, a Paris-trained cordon bleu chef, who is a free spirit but also treats cooking as serious philosophy and is able to recreate her father's culinary style. It seems that the handsome chef cooks up a storm in and out of the kitchen as he helps Siu Man learn to deliver delicious food and his delicious looks arouses her desire. Through him, Siu Man faces her fear of intimacy head-on and liberates herself.

A new level of bad
30 August 2019 | by ks-60500See all my reviews

The story is indeed nonsense in many aspects. A French cook come to hk and work in a Chinese Macdonald? The main actress character is no way she will do table dance. The appearance of the actress customer aims to express what? When I found out the actress is nominated as one of the best leading actress in hK movie award. OMG.... her acting skill is attain a highest unreasonably level of sxxking. The rating I give is credited to the French cook for his acting. Sorry, I'm mean but its so true.
