    Loved this sweet, poignant, charming movie about the huge life changes to a food-obsessed cook's life and how it changes when she has to take care of her niece after her sister dies and also has to adjust to a new sous chef in her kitchen, whose outlook on life and food is far different from hers! Loved it!

    Es otro refrito. Pero está versión alemana me gustó más que la americana y la latina.

    I saw this movie 3 times over the years. Great romantic comedy drama about cooking.

    This is not a romantic farce, and the food plays a different role than what the title picture shows -- not an erotic plaything. This is about a stoic young woman, suddenly becoming a caretaker for her niece, coping with a similarly difficult girl Lina who could not find ways to grief for her dead mother, or seek comforts and security. In the end, the warmth of affection of those reasonable people come through, however German they are. The performance is excellent.

    Una película ligera y delicada acerca de una chef neurótica (la éterea Martina Gedeck) que debe asumir la crianza de su sobrina y compartir su cocina con un relajado chef italiano. La directora Sandra Nettelbeck sabe contar la historia sin empalagar manteniendo el balance entre drama, comedia y corazón.
