Recipe for Love: Directed by Ron Oliver. With Danielle Panabaker, Shawn Roberts, Pascale Hutton, Lori Triolo. An earnest, culinary school hopeful, clashes with a big shot celebrity chef when she is assigned to ghostwrite his cookbook. As they struggle to get through each recipe together, their mismatched cooking styles and misunderstood pasts threaten to send the cookbook up in flames. But after they both dig deeper into the heart of their shared passion, a romance becomes more likely to spark.
“I really enjoyed this movie. The chemistry between the two leads was amazing. I loved the development of the romance due to a common interest. I find that many of the Hallmark romantic movies have characters back stories and story lines that are too unrealistic and contrived (falling in love in days, not seeing the obvious situations in front of them, the overacting, the unbelievable dialogue, etc.) This movie was not like that at all, which was refreshing. I felt invested with the characters; which kept me rooting for them, not only for their romance but also for their career success (which is what a movie is supposed to do).”
