Madrid, 1720. Clara Belmonte arrives in Castamar fleeing a painful past to work in the palace kitchen. The death of her father accused of betrayal of her has disrupted her life plans and has made her ill with agoraphobia. The young woman takes refuge in the kitchen to survive and turns her work into her great passion. Her hopes, her illusions and the conviction that we will all be the same when we all eat the same, spill onto her plates. In the Palace, she cooks for Diego, Duke of Castamar. Widowed and with a bleak past, which Clara's arrival changes life. Little by little they realize that they are in love. The difference in classes is the main obstacle for them to be together. But not the only one.
