36-year-old David Foo () was celebrated for his culinary prowess, yet much disliked for his arrogant and prickly personality. However, an accident toppled him from the pedestal - and left him deeply damaged. David lost the senses most crucial to a chef - his sense of smell and taste.Withdrawing from the limelight to hide his condition, David became a low key private chef instead. A chance encounter with Lin Xiao Xi () results in the most unlikely private chef partnership. Xiao Xi has a “golden palate“, an ability to taste the most complex flavours in any dish, and this proves very useful in complementing David's impaired senses. Gradually, David transforms from a chef with the belief that food should be cooked in the way the master chef deems best - to cooking food according to the desires of the clients he is serving.
