Kate Armstrong (Catherine Zeta-Jones 饰)是一位大厨，她的生活就像她在高档格林威治村布里克街22号餐厅管理厨房一样：她周围的人都很害怕。她的老板Paula (Patricia Clarkson 饰)认为Kate太严肃了，无法表达自己的情感状态。正因为如此，她开玩笑地让Kate 接受治疗；否则，如果她选择不服从，她就会解雇她。更轻松的是在幕后，她不情愿离开厨房这个圣所，除了接受用餐者的恭维，或者在极少数情况下，与质疑她专业知识的顾客纠缠不清。大多数夜晚都会在午夜前发现她躺在床上，在黎明时分起床，击败她的竞争对手，进入鱼市，为了第二天选择最新鲜的食材……
Kate Armstrong (Catherine Zeta-Jones) is a master chef who lives her life like she runs the kitchen at the upscale Greenwich Village restaurant, 22 Bleecker: with an intensity that intimidates everyone around her. Her boss, Paula (Patricia Clarkson), believes that Kate is too serious and not able to express her emotional states. Because of this, she jokingly enlists Kate in therapy; otherwise, she will fire her if she chooses not to comply. More at ease behind the scenes, she unwillingly leaves the kitchen’s sanctuary only to accept compliments from a regular diner or, on rare occasions, to tangle with a customer who questions her expertise. To rest her nervousness and sometimes anger, she takes host in the kitchen freezer. Most nights find her in bed before midnight, set to rise at dawn to beat her competition to the fish market for the next day’s freshest selections.
When her sister is killed in a car accident, her niece, Zoe, (Abigail Breslin) unexpectedly comes to live with her. Mourning constantly about her sister’s death during work, Kate is ordered by Paula to take a week off. When she returns, she realizes that Paula has substituted a partner for her job, the brash, high-spirited sous-chef Nicholas Palmer (Aaron Eckhart). To calm Zoe’s depression from her mother, Kate brings her along to the restaurant on certain nights. As time passes, Kate is unsure what bothers her more—that Nick’s talent scores with 22 Bleecker’s owner Paula and its discriminating clientèle, or that his easygoing charm quickly wins over the shy Zoe, who finds it easier to open up to him than to her aunt. Unfortunately, Zoe refuses to eat anything Kate puts on the table, and she is surprised when she sees her eating some of Nick’s famous noodles from a recipe his grandmother taught him.
One afternoon, Kate forgets to pick up Zoe from school and to make it up to her, Kate invites Nick over for dinner on Zoe’s request. During the dinner, when Zoe is sleeping, Kate and Nick bond over tiramisu and almost kiss.
