The little mouse Remy has an unparalleled talent in the sense of smell. He doesn’t want to live a life with garbage dumps, and dreams of becoming a five-star chef.
By chance, he met Linguini, an apprentice at Gust’s restaurant. This unlucky apprentice was shy by nature and had no talent in cooking. He was squeezed out by the chef of the restaurant and was about to be fired. One person and one mouse formed a strange alliance: Remy dedicated his creative brain. Operate Linguini’s front desk “show”.
With the help of Remy, Linguini not only became a new “genius chef”, but also won the love of a beautiful colleague, but also defeated the chef’s conspiracy and became the legal heir of the Gust restaurant. The sudden success made Linguini a little overwhelmed. He wanted to get rid of his puppet status and drove Remy out of the kitchen.
The success of the Gust restaurant has attracted the attention of the harsh food critic Cologne, who is preparing to taste Linguini’s craftsmanship and re-evaluate the star rating for the restaurant; the former chef who is not willing to fail is eager to find Linguini The Secret to Overnight Fame. Without Remy, how should Linguini face these problems…
