High-school senior Mark (Henry Lau) has a natural talent for cooking. Despite this flair for food, his restaurant-owning grandfather, Hao, insists he pursue a more stable profession once he graduates. But when Hao falls ill and the restaurant faces foreclosure, Mark hatches a secret plan to enter a nationally televised cooking competition in Shanghai. As he ascends through the competition rounds, his talent attracts the attention of show creator Julia Lee (Michelle Yeoh, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon), leading to a final challenge no one could have predicted.
Featuring the acting debut of Toronto-born K-Pop sensation Lau, Final Recipe is a charming comedy-drama that will leave you feeling inspired, delighted — and probably a little hungry too.
