But their experience never prepared them for the challenges theyâ€™re about to face. Treasure hunters searching for gold, a cold-blooded real-estate businessman, an ex-wife with a child who could be Martinâ€™s, false accusationsâ€¦ are just some of the problems our two chefs must add to their hectic workload!
