Esaki Motomu is a gifted chef, but he lacks the necessary social skills. His uncompromising ways when it comes to cooking causes problems to those around him. As a chef, he believes firmly in the formula: Taste = Ingredients x Cooking Method, nothing more, nothing less. There isn't any need for human relations, love, traditions.
The famous Italian restaurant "Ristorante Roccabianca" is owned and run by Tatsumi Hideo. His daughter Saori acts as the restaurant's manager, and one day, she receives a call from the producers of the TV show, "Iron Chef". Hideo has been invited to appear on the show. Unfortunately, Hideo collapses while cooking, and goes into a coma. With no chef to helm the restaurant, Saori has no choice but to close the restaurant until Hideo recovers.
Meanwhile, Motomu is happily cooking alone in his tiny little Italian Bar kitchen, not realising that soon he may be working for Ristorante Roccabianca...

Comments by Eyeyore [Rating: 7/10] Great cinematography. The lighting makes the food delicious and makes me hungry too. Story is quite cliche and it's quite like My Little Chef.
I like how the show wraps up. If anyone knows where I can access the italian music that runs in the opening of the drama, pm me. thx.
Comments by sasukekun6 [Rating: 6/10] This drama is good at making you really hungry. Story line wise it's rather so-so. The characters are also fairly so-so. The acting was pretty good, just the characters weren't all that interesting. It's an alright drama, but could have been better.
Comments by DoramaQ [Rating: 8/10] Good ensemble drama. Great job by the cast. The last scene with Eguchi's Ezaki was wonderful! Would love to see a special.
