Final Recipe (2013) Overview:
CHao’s Singaporean restaurant is in danger of going out of business. Hao’s grandson, Mark, secretly travels to Shanghai to attend a cooking competition despite his grandfather’s wishes for him to become an engineer. Mark takes the place of a contestant who did not show up and must now impress the host, Julia Lee, and her chef husband, David Chen. Chen, who is originally from Singapore and misses his family, eventually learns he is Mark’s father.
Hao’s only hope is that his grandson Mark enters a prestigious university, but Mark’s dream is to follow his grandfather’s footsteps and become a chef and take over the family restaurant
Playing the mastermind of a successful, long-running cooking-competition show – or, as the character Julia is described in the film, the gastronomic “grandmaster” – Yeoh is central to the proceedings. But more as a catalyst, mind, as Final Recipe is essentially a film about generational schisms among the men in a clan: the major ingredient in the formula here is Mark (a vibrant turn from the Canadian-Chinese K-pop star Henry Lau), a Singaporean high-school student whose enthusiasm and gift in preparing food are frowned upon by his chef-grandfather Hao (Chang Tseng), who single-handedly raised him with hopes of getting the boy into university rather than taking over his crumbling restaurant.
