Lin Ke Song has an acute sense of taste and she loves to eat. She works in a hotel but due to an incident with a guest - Jian Qian Fan (of her own doing), she is fired by the hotel. To pursue a rich schoolmate that she has liked for over 10 years (who treats her like a buddy), she follows him to Shanghai. In a strange turn of events, she joins a cooking competition, and is chosen by a renowned Michelin-certified chef Jiang Qian Fan as his disciple. Unbeknownst to her, he has a reason for doing so and it certainly has nothing to do with her lack of culinary talent. Due to a medical condition, he is slowly losing his sense of taste and needs to nurture someone to achieve his goal which is to ensure the restaurant he is running is upgraded from a two-star Michelin restaurant to a three-star one. Having witnessed Ke Song's highly discerning sense of taste and passion for food, he is determined to transform Ke Song via his rigorous plan. From someone who is undisciplined, with zero culinary skills, his aim is to develop her into his successor. Together, they prepare for the cooking competition, and they have only three months for her transformation to take place. Along the way, love blossoms.

 

 [Adapted from the novel "The Heartbeat at the Tip of the Tongue" (舌尖上的心跳) by Jiao Tang Dong Gua (焦糖冬瓜)]

I've not watched Ethan Ruan act before and I must say he looks rather imposing here as a chef. Lareina Song is 16 years younger than him. So the show reminds me of Dating in the Kitchen, there's food galore - Michelin style, there's a discernible age gap between the ML and FL, and as usual, there's very little love between them from the beginning; the major difference is that the ML is a chef himself and not a rich chaebol's son AND our FL knows nothing whatsoever about cooking.

 

The only challenge right now with this drama is that it has not been subbed as yet. I am hoping it will soon and that someone will come along and watch this drama. It airs everyday, so the waiting game is more tolerable. Someone, come join me real soon!

Ok ok I will join you  LOL...up to ep 3 subbed.  Ethan joined my favourites with his mischief in Legend of Fuyao so of course I will watch. Thank you for posting and telling us that this drama started. 

FL does come across as ugly duckling lol but her food senses are like he said phenomenal , genius. Yes I get the Dating in the Kitchen vibe, but since i love to cook and see beautiful cooking drama , I am in.  Our 'China town' does not do the justice to the   rich tapestry of Chinese dishes and the communal sustainability of traditional foods. 

Romance , I will have to see what develops and how it develops. Everyone has their story and I hope theirs is more sweet than sour and for our sake entertaining and feel good drama.

@jadore1 hip hip hurray! Thank heavens its being subbed. Considering the two main actors though I was somewhat confident that it would be. I don't like some parts of it, like how he's trying to inculcate discipline into her and something feels off about it. I don't know if it's the acting, the execution or the plot. Otherwise, I think it will be quite a fun watch, seeing how they come together later on. And of course when the 2nd ML comes around and realises that the FL means more than just his best buddy.

Sorry I am late  with updates...subbed up to 9 as of Jan 20/22 and raw 16.  The miracle of food , or should I say the miracle of nature and humanity when we sincerely and optimally co create ...there is no end to the possibilities.  Up until now the techo world thinks it has humanity by the b..s but its the miracle of Mother Earth and our food that is our greatest potential...green pepper is the sweetest at 3 am , I never knew that ....we are really using only 1% of our intelligence because we have no idea how to appreciate our nest and environment. Great drama .   Characters as diverse as the menu . ML is fighting for his life in a sense and the ugly duckling I am hoping will turn out to be his swan to overcome all the hurdles. Jiayou !!! :kiss_wink:

I just read some comments on another site and it never entered my mind that it could be like this wow ... I don't know how to share this so I will put it under the spoilers 

Spoiler

I think Oli's Ex put something in those diffusers to cause his taste loss. I think she believes he will come back to her if he no longer has cooking as a passion.

    ooohhhh that's an amazing guess! I believe Elise is cray cray enough for it. Her constantly angry face scares me

up to ep 12/40  subbed. Elsie the bit**  (Elsie is really  ugly :ph34r: and our ugly duckling is becoming more dear and beautiful LOL)  sure enough provided the night oil defusers that are impacting his taste buds /brain nerves and now she is pretending that the soup she is making him will alleviate that condition without telling him about the oil .  Our instincts , or his instincts to keep away from her are still 100% but because of past relationships we all blindly follow guilt trips ...loyalty  is fine and good but when it becomes detrimental too bad we don't know how to change fast without becoming victims.

This drama so far is providing me with very nice entertainment  and I look forward to the next 28 episodes .

I can never enter a house or a car where people use artificial dirt masking oils / perfumes. I can never wear or stand close to anyone that still uses fabric softeners (they too essentially create a film over the dirty clothes or towels and they are never clean , ever again)   so ep 13 definitely had my attention .

 I wipe off or take a bath daily but never wear chemical underarm deodorants ( and people ask why the % of breast cancers sky rocketed for the past 30 years...shave and apply chemical garbage and guess where it goes, the most sensitive female organs ).  So if this episode helps some to open their  eyes and saves them from serious respiratory illnesses and cancers , I definitely thank this writer and director for coming out and showing the senseless and detrimental habits that shamed us into acquiring . 

Note:  I seem to really really dislike Elsie the dog and miss poor Nina ...hopefully FL will get her back soon  and ML crawl with apologies.

@jadore1 Our chef really goes to such extreme ends to ensure the food he serves is in optimal condition; my hats off to him. Yes, I've watched what you commented in the spoiler section and would you be surprised considering how vindictive/ business-like the mother is? 

 

I am still a little conflicted watching our Chef, he really needs work on his emotional intelligence and I really like the scene where our ugly ducking told him to sit down, that she needed to talk to him. I applaud her for being so adult-like about it and setting the terms and condition for their relationship.

 

I just finished watching E17...and she's so heartbroken, poor thing. I can't wait for tonight but there's only one episode- sigh.

@leo2020 welcome! I hope you enjoy it.

 

 

@jadore1 where are you at with this drama? I've reached E32 and am anxiously waiting for tonight - I hope their relationship progresses to the next level, and for heaven's sake I hope it doesn't only happen in E39 and 40, I would be gnashing my teeth in exasperation at the long wait.

 

Incidentally, watching the ML is like sitting in a roller coaster. You don't know when he's going to burst out in a fit of anger. I know someone like that at work and it's like having to walk on egg shells as you don't know what you say or do will trigger the person. In this case, I really admire our FL for forgiving him each time. The good news is that he is softening up to her, it's extremely obvious and I wonder if she realises that she has that impact on him. On her end, her heart aches for him but whether she realises why, I wonder as well. I still can't get over the way our FL smiles, it's erh...unconventional...the way she breaks out in a smile? I think the show has this message (at least to me) that age is definitely not a sign of wisdom (e.g. the ML and the 2nd ML's brother).
