Since Marie joined Bruno Mercier's restaurant, a multi-star chef, she only thinks to perfect her skills. But Thomas, the sous-chef, is wary of this possible rival. During a service, Mary cuts herself, letting a few drops of blood mix with her sauce. When Bruno tastes Marie's dish, he considers it perfect.
