Story: A drama about cooking salty fish buns? Mm... YUM? Maybe. Haven't seen much TVB comedies set in historical periods, some previous ones had cheesy slapstick type of comedy and I hate those. This was not - which I enjoyed very much. Started out as a comedy but evolved into a drama in the later episodes which I don't mind so much because it's story development - so that's cool with me. read more Acting/Cast: I started this hoping the comedy presented by Wong Cho Lam would not be slapstick type and YES it was not. I think he really carried this drama and if anyone else was cast for his role, I probably would not have enjoyed this drama as much. He is one of a kind. Newcomer Stephanie, although her acting was pretty cringe worthy at times, I found her portrayal of her character really cute and like-able. I'll definitely keep an eye out for her in upcoming dramas. They were really the only two characters that had me glued to the screen. Nancy was really mediocre in this probably because of her poor character. Ben and Joey just did not interest me all that much.

Music: Opening song was quirky and upbeat. Totally lifts up my mood before I dove into the actual drama itself.

Rewatch Value: Probably not something I would rewatch, but who knows.

Overall: It was a pretty good comedy. Enjoyed Wong Cho Lam moments very much that I went to find other dramas with him in it.. not much luck in getting my hands on them though. I would recommend to only pick this one up if you have nothing better to watch and in the mood for something light and enjoyable.

    A goofy commoner with an extraordinary sense of smell & talent for fish buns runs a food stall in early times. He, his sidekick,incognito female chef & medicine woman haphazardly befriend Prince Yin and their life changes as they get involved in palace politics,soothing of lives through simple common folk metaphors, yearning for love (lite), and FOOD. This is a VERY light series and should be classified as COMEDY, Historical and lastly drama. If you are needing something to lite and silly & like historical time periods, this might do for you. For any food-ee, this might entertain if you can handle silly, goofy antics as side dishes.

    I found this on Wikipedia

    Gilded Chopsticks is an upcoming Hong Kong historical fiction television serial produced by TVB. Set during the reign of Emperor Yongzheng, the fifth emperor of a Manchu-led Qing Dynasty, the serial follows the adventures of a lazy but gifted "golden-tongued" imperial chef Ko Tin-po (Wong Cho-lam), whose clumsy activities lead him to befriend Emperor Yongzheng (Ben Wong). The story is inspired by Jin Yong's wuxia novel, The Deer and the Cauldron.[2]

    Helmed by executive producer Wong Wai-sing, 25 episodes of the serial will be produced. Production began in Hong Kong in March 2013. The serial will also shoot on locations at Hengdian World Studios.
