This movie, based off the film "Bella Martha" ("Mostly Martha") was released in 2007. Kate is a chef with a take-no-prisoners perfectionist attitude, but she's thrown off her game when her sister dies and she finds herself the legal guardian of her young niece. A new sous chef named Nick is added to the mix for good measure, and Kate's life seems to be unraveling at the seams. Her niece, Zoe, is grief-stricken and tramautized, and Kate suspects Nick is gunning for her job.

Food plays a big role in several scenes of this movie, such as when Nick coaxes Zoe -- who won't eat anything cooked by Kate -- to sample some of his renowned spaghetti, or when he and Kate almost kiss over a helping of tiramisu. The chemistry between Nick and Kate becomes increasingly obvious to them both, and they forge a romance as early tensions subside. Competition rears its head again, however, almost complicating matters beyond repair, but everything works out as it should in the end.
