In the great restaurant of life, there are those who eat and those who get eaten. Raimundo Nonato finds an alternative way, a life of his own: he cooks in order to survive and find a place in society. He arrives in town without a penny in his pockets and starts working as help at a run-down bar. He learns how to fry chicken dumplings, outdoing his boss, Zulmiro, the owner of the bar. Nonato is ignorant, but talented. He knows how to work the kitchen, soon others realize it too. The first one to notice him is Iria, a prostitute, who doesn't know how to cook but loves to eat his dumplings and starts an affair with him. The owner of an Italian restaurant in the neighborhood, Giovanni, offers Nonato a job as his apprentice. A turn of events results in Nonato being thrown in prison. He then realizes his cooking skills will secure him a leading position within the prison's hierarchy.
