What is passion? – That's the question that Laila sets out to answer through the lens of food. In order to learn about where passion comes from, she talks to her father, whose love of cooking comes "straight from the motherland" of Ghana and from his own mother. She also interviews her mother, who cooked for her siblings growing up, and who still views cooking as more of a chore. Laila's friends Jahqyad and Victoria also view cooking differently – Jahqyad views it as a passion, whereas Victoria no longer thinks a career in the culinary field is her calling.
