What's Cooking?

She had heard so much about that enticing recipe from her family, who had tasted the sweet-dish in its birthplace, that she wanted to experience it herself.

Her life was no longer boring as she derived succor in her experiments, though she met with little success, trying to create the dish that no one knew how to prepare...

As her desire was scorching her day and night, despite severe opposition from her family, she went in quest of that secret recipe like a girl possessed.
