Official Synopsis

Ever since his childhood, KO TIN-PO (Wong Cho Lam) has tasted a variety of great delicacies, and he is capable of analyzing the food quality and authenticity once he tastes it.

But, owing to the decline of his family, he ends up wandering on the street with his servant LEE WAI (Jack Wu), making a living from selling buns. Also due to his gourmet background, he gets to know a street performer KEI MO-SUET (Joey Meng), the most beautiful girl in Peking NIAN RUOBI (Nancy Wu) and teen celebrity chef MAI SIU-YU (Stephanie Ho), etc. As fate would have it, he comes across Prince YINZHEN (Ben Wong), who is making a tour in disguise, and the two share similar interests. Later on, he is recommended for an imperial chef in the palace, where he runs into his archrival CHOI HOK-TING (Bob Lam), resulting in consecutive fierce battles between them. Meanwhile, TIN-PO has no idea he has been caught in the plot that Prince YINSI (Louis Cheung) hatches to become the rightful heir to the throne. Under such disadvantage, TIN-PO becomes the man who brings luck to Prince YINZHEN, continuously turning the tide for him before his defeat. However, an unexpected betrothal brings him down from the lofty position to the most inferior one of a stray dog……

    This series to be honest is pretty funny and kind of interesting i thought. As in it doesnt bore.

    In episode 20, do you think that louis cheung is up to a plot trying to get rid of the current king so he can reclaim the throne for himself but using joey meng to get him to it?

    It was also kind of sad to also see that nancy had cholam had to split. never reallly like her older brother anyways. 😛 haha..

      I agree with you. Am also enjoying every episode of Gilded Chopsticks to my surprise. I believe Louis is scheming against Ben since in the theme video it had a scene where Louis wore the majesty’s robe and pointed a knife at Cho Lam.

      But too bad in history, Nancy’s character Consort Dunsu married Yonzheng.

      BTW I found this interesting article about the reign of Yonzheng http://www.fampeople.com/cat-yongzheng-emperor_5
