A damning restaurant review costs a NYC chef his pride and his last customers. He retreats to a villa in Italy to clear his head and rediscover his passion for cooking in the old country. He has started to find peace when the critic who ruined him, a beautiful woman, arrives at the villa with her fiancé, a stuck up British celebrity chef. They are stuck under the same roof. Amidst the beautiful scenery, the truffle hunts and the gorgeous vineyards, the cook and the critic work out their issues with each other while falling in love and reconciling their roots.
