Plot Synopsis

Lauren Hennessey has always loved to cook and is a proud perfectionist at her job at Food & Entertainment Magazine's test kitchen while she dreams of being able to finally afford culinary school in Paris. When her boss offers her a bonus if she agrees to ghostwrite the cookbook of a difficult celebrity chef, Lauren sees her dream becoming a reality -- as soon as she can tame Dexter Durant, the notorious bad-boy chef in question. The edgy host of his own cooking show, Dexter has a reputation of being reckless and stubborn and immediately clashes with Lauren on the project, preferring to keep his recipes -- and his personal life -- private. Despite the warnings of her older sister Nan, Lauren refuses to give up, attempting to conquer each of Dexter's dishes with precision. Slowly peeling back the layers of Dexter's tough-guy persona, she starts seeing a different, vulnerable side to this big-shot chef. Suddenly, their dueling culinary styles become the perfect complement in the kitchen and an attraction between them starts to boil over. With their unpredictable new romance heating up, Lauren tries to save Dexter's sinking career by getting him to open himself up to a different kind of cookbook, while simultaneously shutting down Gio, a scheming young chef coveting Dexter's time slot. As the cookbook nears completion, Dexter and Gio must face off in a final cook-off, judged by celebrity Peter DeLuise, while Lauren and Dexter finally discover the best way to write a recipe is to cook from the heart.
