To Rebecca's surprise, Jake is actually a famous New York chef, and the slim ballerina is soon swept up into the glamorous world of fine cuisine while helping him plan a fundraiser banquet.Thrown into Jake's world of zany sous chefs, nosy relatives, and a group of well meaning Brooklyn matchmakers, Rebecca learns there is life outside the ballet and that falling isn't so bad when you're in love.
