The story started so beautifully but ended so sadly…
“From Scratch ss 2”: release date, announcement
The sequel to the romantic drama “From Scratch” has not been announced, although fans are confidently waiting for the announcement of new episodes. Even before the premiere of the picture, it was known that it would be a limited series without a sequel. Therefore, we should not wait for new episodes.
Amy has always been an obedient girl in the family circle. Parents appreciated her strengths: resilience, focus on results and the will to win. But when the girl expressed her opinion about her own future, her father opposed. She had already studied for several years at the Faculty of Law, which her father had chosen for her. Gathering her strength and not enlisting the support of her relatives, Amy flies to Florence, where the best art lessons take place.
A request to pay for her time in Italy was rejected by her father, so Amy had to work. It is not surprising, because for the sake of creativity, the girl abandoned her studies at the law faculty. The father was too angry, and the mother insisted that Amy needs to make her own decision. When her daughter asked to give her the opportunity to continue her studies in Italy, her father again refused.
But Amy’s new acquaintance, the chef of a small restaurant named Lino, was always happy for her. At first, only friendly relations developed between them, since Amy was courted by an Italian businessman. But when the girl realized that when she left Florence it was hard for her to say goodbye to Lino, she broke off her previous relationship and could no longer resist her feelings for the young chef.
The lovers manage to carry their love through the distance, and soon they are reunited in America. And no matter how many trials they meet on the way, Amy and Lino manage to pass them. The father puts up with his dislike for his daughter’s boyfriend and even praises his gourmet dishes, which Lino, no doubt, cooked with great care.
Years passed. One day an incurable disease came to their house. Destroying everything that they had built over the years, Lino gradually faded into oblivion. Life without him seems like real torture to Amy, but for the sake of the child and those to whom she is dear, she has to live on…
