Simone Larkspur is a pastry expert at The Discerning Chef, a cookbook publisher in New York City. When The Discerning Chef decides to bring their brand into the 21st century by pivoting to video, Simone is thrust into the spotlight. To make matters worse, Simone has to deal with Ray Lyton, the new test kitchen manager, whose obnoxious cheer and outgoing personality are like oil to Simone's water. But the more they work together, the more Simone realizes her heart may be softening for Ray. When Ray comes out at work as nonbinary to mixed reactions, Simone must choose between the career she fought so hard for and the person who just might take the cake (and her heart).
