Working at the Zijing Hotel, Gu Sheng Nan was an underestimated commis inside the kitchen but she was free to express herself through her food, as she sharpened her skills as a chef to make matters worse, an unfortunate misunderstanding lands her on the wrong side of her soon-to-be boss, the sharp-tongued CEO, Lu Jin.
As a business prodigy, Lu Jin isn’t afraid to make the tough decisions. Ready to condemn the Zijing Hotel, Lu Jin changes his mind after a happy accident brings one of Sheng Nan’s dishes his way. A hardcore foodie, Lu Jin is impressed with Sheng Nan’s skill as a chef and readily recognizes her talent. Sharing a love of food, this unlikely pair begins to form an unexpected bond that leads them to a place neither of them ever expected to be.
Gu Shengnan is the assistant chef of the Bauhinia Hotel, and he maintains a secret underground relationship with the restaurant chef Zhong Rui of the same hotel. Gu Shengnan, who devoted his heart and soul to affection, was “chewed” by his boyfriend. Gu Shengnan was frustrated in love and suffered a serious setback in his career. He faces the danger of losing his job because the hotel where he has worked for many years is about to be acquired. Gu Shengnan made the mistake of drawing the car of Lu Jin, a commercial prodigy who came to buy the hotel for his friend, and the two formed Liangzi.
For the hotel that was already in danger, Lu Jin was sentenced to death. However, an accident in the kitchen made Lu Jin, who “takes food as his heaven”, was impressed by Gu Shengnan’s cooking skills. Gu Shengnan conquered Lu Jin’s heart and stomach by turning his “enemy” into food. Lu Jin also constantly inspires Gu Shengnan’s talent in cooking. The two gradually wiped out the spark of love from “meeting friends through food” and became better each other.
