Plot[edit | edit source]
Nikki Turner is an aspiring chef who lands the job of her dreams when her idol Holly Hanson asks her to work at her lavish restaurant. Sure that her next big break is on the rise, she soon finds herself making one-of-a-kind meals that she taught herself to make. And after a rough start, she soon becomes best friends with executive chef Paul Dellucci. But as peppy and considerate as Holly may seem, it turns out she has a shady side that comes out in full force when she unfairly fires Nikki and Paul just because they were eating dinner together in a spot she didn’t approve of. Afterwards, Nikki and Paul decide to come together and open their own restaurant to show that their food is better. And as they commence a battle against the scheming celebrity chef, they both use their creative thinking to create some of the most delicious treats around and add their own little dash of love into the mix.
