A Slice of Humility

Teresa Fernandes meets the famous chef Miguel Matos and after impressing him, she is hired to work in his restaurant. She is a young adult who eagerly wants her Chef to give her an opportunity to prove her abilities in the high-class restaurant where she now works. However, Miguel sees that Teresa tends to be very clumsy and prefers to keep her on a short leash because he thinks she has more eyes than stomach. One day, Teresa arrives late and her boss gives her the task of peeling three bags of potatoes. When she realizes she can only find two, Teresa goes to the pantry to look for the third and accidentally eats the cake that was made for the Administration that was going to dine at the restaurant that same day, thinking it was leftovers. Now, with the help of her coworker Mariana, they have to prepare a new cake before the Administration arrives. Teresa is about to discover that working in a kitchen is a much greater responsibility than she could have ever imagined.
