A woman on the director’s board at the hospital hosts a class with Chef Dave as the instructor. Nina is volunteered to help him cook and gets a bad first impression of him. However, her boss tells her that the only way that the board will approve the class and promote Nina, is if Dave teaches it.

In order, to satisfy the board and her boss, Nina decides to take a cooking class with Dave to win him over. However, this plan backfires because Dave and Nina get on each other’s nerves.
