Callous and eccentric CEO Lu Jin checks into a hotel to conduct acquisition research. He is dissatisfied with everything he sees, but a last-minute dish whipped up by sous-chef Gu Shengnan blows his mind. Out of the hotel, the two are arch enemies, vowing to stay as far away from the other as they can. But in the kitchen, they share a mutual appreciation and love for fine cuisine. In the tug-of-war between contempt and fondness, which side will win?
Director Derek Hui

Born in the northeastern Chinese port city of Dalian in Liaoning province in 1974, he studied acting at the Shanghai Theatre Academy and since then has worked with some of the most significant film directors in China. In 1998 he moved to Beijing and spent a decade working as an assistant with directors such as Wang Xiaoshuai (Beijing Bicycle) and Liu Jie (Judge).
