When TV chef Marsha's ratings begin to slip, her producer decides to pair her with internet cooking star Rick to 'mix it up' in the studio kitchen. Marsha, a traditionally trained chef, sets things off on the wrong foot with the eager Rick, who’s claim to Internet fame are his quick meals for the busy urbanite. Marsha eventually warms up to him and realizes that this collaboration could be good for her career. But, will this be a recipe for success or a total disaster?

COOKING FOR TWO is a bubbly musical comedy with wall-to-wall music and dance numbers, showcasing the talents of Marsha Yuen and Rick Lau, who are active in the local stage musical and comedy scene, respectively. A total family affair, with matriarch Cheng Pei Pei producing and making a cameo (her children have various roles as screenwriters, director, producer and main cast) in the film.
