About the Movie
Lovable pastry chef Carmen dreams of opening her own Puerto Rican-influenced bakery. When hotel owner Victor Flores discovers Carmen’s talents, he invites her to apply for a position as pastry chef for his hotel’s holiday gala. Knowing other applicants will have culinary-school backgrounds, as opposed to her homegrown skills, Carmen reluctantly applies. When she is accepted, she’s paired with chef Jax to curate the perfect holiday menu. But the two do not mix well. Carmen is messy and cooks from the heart; Jax is a perfectionist fixated on technique. As they race against the clock to assemble their intricate holiday menu, sparks fly, and they realize they might have more to learn from one another than they initially thought. Stars Camila Banus, Mark Hapka, Melissa Marty, Harrison Grant, Terri Hoyos, and David Fumero (2022).
