Guido, age 20, with a great talent and boundless passion for cooking, is one of the pupils, but Arturo is terribly rude to him. When Anna, the beautiful director of the institute, orders Arturo to take Guido to a cooking contest, the chef is riled no end. But unexpectedly, while the contest goes on, he becomes really engaged in the challenge and he begins to appreciate Guido’s naïveté and loyalty. In the end, the unexpected friendship between them will help Arturo to change his life.
