Plot – Chef Adam Jones had everything, and he lost it. Rockstar of the stove with two Michelin stars and with bad-boy habits, the former enfant terrible of the Parisian restaurant was famous for his extreme improvisation in his never-ending search for thrills in the creation of taste explosions. To open his own restaurant and earn the elusive third Michelin star, however, he needs the best of the best on his side, including the beautiful Helen. “Burnt” is an incredibly fun and exciting story about love for food, love between two people, and the power of a second chance.
