Not My Mother's Baking
Press Play to start
Sarah is living under the shadow of her mother – a culinary celebrity spending all her time in TV studios and culinary schools. But the daughter has her own ideas for mouth-watering cakes and delicious creams, which she wants to introduce to the whole world with the help of the handsome, helpful, and gallant Imran,
a perfect guy who sees Sarah as someone more than a friend. The idea for an internet show directed by his friend Edwin can bring about unexpected, far-reaching consequences.
Singapore is famous for its eclectic cuisine, which owns its variety to a multiethnic society. Traditional Chinese dishes, Malay delicacies, a whole palette of Indian spices and imported European flavors with a local twist – together, they create
a unique array of sensory experiences, but they can also cause cultural problems. Will the daughter of a respected Malay baking champion and the son of the owners of a famous Chinese roasted pork stall find a common language?
This unpretentious family tale of overcoming prejudice, intercultural meetings, and looking for your own path in life, has a lot of culinary and cultural undertones.
The mother and the daughter are played by real stars of Singapore culinary scene.
