SYNOPSIS: Finding himself in hot water when his LA restaurant goes under, Chef Eric Funke seeks solace in his obsession: the dying art of handmade pasta. Immersing himself in authentic pasta making (did you know there’s over 300 varieties?), Funke builds enough steam to open a new spot on one of the most competitive streets in the US. Insisting that handmade noodles are front and center (literally with a windowed view for diners) the question becomes: will he whip the place into shape, or does it all go down the drain?
