There is also a chairman. Who tells them about a " International Chef challenge competition". I think , you both have to participate in it. Now both had to prove it  who is the superior chef between them. So both get ready. Now "Paul" tells social  media that I used to cook in France. I realized, coming to China that people still use the traditional ways for cooking. It is obvious that he was conveying it to "Gao" in a hidden way. Hearing it, "Gao" becomes more angry. There all know that they will face each other in competition there at first. They will be able to reach the final competition if they win it. Otherwise, they will also get the opportunity to meet the master chef. And that master chef was not anyone else but the father of "Gao".

You all may dine in our restaurant.Now "Gao" and his friends go to Paul's restaurant, But "Paul" does not serve them meal but his same friend. That meal was appearing as fried egg and a plant. But its taste was unique. "Gao" thinks after tasting that Paul's cooking is very different. He directly moves to restaurant's kitchen and says "Paul" furiously, What do you want to prove showing your tasty meal? That you are master chef! "Paul" remains silent and asks him to cook meat, Let's check who can cook the meat more tasty! "Gao" welcomes the challenge. "Gao" cooks meat skillfully. It is looking very tasty. Now "Paul" tells him, "I show you how to cook this dish using the same method." "Paul" begins, and he cooks the same dish in record time. "Gao" is not finding any difference when he sniffs it. Then he understands that his method of cooking is very progressive. Being upset, he leaves that place. Now someone says to "Gao", That his father is calling you! "Gao" moves to his father. He asks, Why did you call me now? Even though you don't accept that I am not your son. His father master chef says, I did it so the World may not say that you are my son! This is the cause that you get a chance to partake in the "International chef challenge competition. I am rather want it that you may do it yourself! "Gao" says, Father! I don't need of your help. You were not with me when I needed you. Anyhow, I will prove it that I can do it! Due to this, you left me. Now "Gao" leaves this place because he does not trust on the single word of his father. Next day, "International chef challenge competition" is held. Everything has been prepared. Participants "Gao" and "Paul" are also ready.
