Description: Meet Isabella, a sultry enchantress born with the special gift of melting the palates and hearts of men everywhere. When she decides to break free from her rocky marriage and the stifling kitchen of her husband's restaurant in Brazil, she spirits off to San Francisco in pursuit of her dreams of a real culinary career. There she meets an ambitious TV producer who, seeing a winning combination in her good looks and gift for cooking, gives Isabella her very own show. With a new life in a new city, Isabella embarks on a personal journey with her exuberant, cross-dressing childhood friend, Monica, to discover not only her passion and potential, but the perfect recipe for coming out on top.
