The year is 1932. Irving and his daughter, Honey, are preparing for the opening of their gourmet restaurant in Niagara Falls, Canada. Their plan to feature a famous French chef turns into a recipe for disaster when he fails to appear. Things go from bad to worse when they persuade an unemployed drifter to don the chef's hat and apron at the last moment. Add lots of doors, mistaken identities, and freshly baked salmon mousse into the mix and enjoy this delightful Canadian confection.
