Move through Fantasy and Reality while watching Asian Drama!
Description: This drama follows the staff of an Italian restaurant and their everyday struggles. "Roccabianca" is a famous and popular Italian restaurant, but their head chef and owner Tatsumi suddenly collapses and the restaurant loses its unique flavor. The number of customers rapidly declines, but the owner's daughter and deputy manager Saori happens to find another chef named Ezaki through an online job market who learned cooking at the same place her father did. Ezaki becomes the new head chef of this restaurant and while nobody can deny that he is a gifted chef, it's his extreme rationalism that doesn't exactly go well with the restaurants attempt to save its traditional flavor.
The King of Cooking
Japan is obsessed with cooking themed movies and dramas and I’m pretty sure Eguchi Yosuke has starred in the majority of these. In my opinion, Dinner is one of his best. Eguchi plays a gifted chef that lacks a "kitchenside" manner. Dinner’s setting is a well respected Italian restaurant, the owner and executive chef is taken ill and Eguchi steps in to save the floundering restaurant. A little more serious than another good cooking drama, Bambino, we get involved in the mini dramas of the kitchen and front of house staff. Rank this one right up there with Rich Man, Poor Woman.
