Follows the ongoing flirtation between Manuel and Lourdes, two Negrense chefs who grew up in Bacolod, and whose lives revolve around food, Abello said. Trouble starts when Jacko loses his Italian restaurant, Puccini’s, to a giant cockfighting debt. The moneylender Dolpo takes control of Puccini’s and hires Cassie as a consultant for a total restaurant makeover. Cassie re-visions Puccini’s into a place that serves traditional Negrosanon food, and we are treated to the full panorama of Negrosanon cuisine and the idiosyncrasies of Negrosanon eating. Along the way, Manuel and Lourdes find time to finally fall in love and set aside their differences.
