When the heir to a lucrative restaurant empire falls for a simple girl who can only cook instant noodles, their romance creates a sizable rift for the mother who only wants her son to marry an experienced chef in director Billy Chung's freewheeling culinary comedy. SK (Hacken Lee) is a restaurant heir with a bright future. Ceci (Charmaine Sheh) couldn't find her way around the kitchen to save her life. Against all odds, the experienced restaurateur falls head over heels in love with the beautiful Ceci. But not all is well in romance, because SK's mother has no plans of budging on her demand that her future daughter-in-law be no less than a gourmet chef. Now, as the meddling mother-in-law attempts to steer her son into the arms of master chef Jade, the sympathetic Lady Green (Kung Fu Hustle's Yuen Qiu) vows to transform Ceci into a culinary wiz with the power to defeat even the formidable Jade in an upcoming gourmet showdown designed to find the best chef in all of Hong Kong.
