The well-loved travel and cuisine television show

"Bread's Bread" is hosted by Bread Jean Pierre

The son of famous Asian writer

Sophia Su Jean Pierre

Well known for her French travel writing

With his prince charming like appearance

and excellent baking skills and pastry,

Bread charmed the audiences

And soon became the top rated show...

of its kind in the American west

Let us take a look from the clip of the show

Most bread sucks

Because most bread lacks creativity and sincerity

This is the reason that I go around the world

in search for the most creative,

most sincere,

and the best bread in the world

My name is Bread

Join me in the search

for the best bread in the world

This is Bread's Bread

Yet, recently the show has faced challenges

Even though Bread worked very hard

the ratings dwindled

at the end of the latest season last year

The sudden death of his mother

left him devastated and in shock

He left this message...

on his Facebook page

I'm tired

And I am going to find my mother

Since then Bread has disappeared

The show has been stopped for half year

People around the world are worried of his safety

His fans are eagerly awaiting his come-back


Come with me

What for?

Just come with me for a sec

Don't drag me!

Come, come in here

Come on, come


What on earth do you want?

You'll know soon

Close your eyes and wait a sec

I might fall

Don't worry. Let me hold your hand

No peeking


Now, eyes closed?


Wait a minute

Hey, what are you doing?

OK, it'll be ready in a second

Come on, hurry up!

Now what?

Ping, would you marry me?

One second

You're proposing to me...

...with the candles you took from the temple?

Well, your little bro is so flaky!

So what's your plan for our future together?

Just stay here and take over the bakery

Making bread here for the rest of our lives?


What's wrong with it?

We've been together for such a long time

It's time to settle down

You wash my underpants for me

Only I know how to take care of you

when you're in your period or when you're angry

Really? What would you do when I'm angry?

Are you going to marry me or what?

What's your problem?


Go away


I told you to go away. I hate being pushed

I have to push you a little bit.

You are already 30!

I'm only 28, OK?

According to the lunar calendar, you're 30!

Just go away!

Hey, I spent a fortune on this ring

I'll leave it here

Don't lose it, OK?

Everyone, Bonjourl

Good morning

Now, we are listening to

Paris! Texas! a new single by the band, Never Dies

The courier is here

Sam, aren't you going to send

the bananas to your son?

Come on

Or the bananas will be off by the time

your son gets them

And, Jack, please...

Stop fighting with your wife.

You fight all the time

that everyone has heard it

Stop fighting. Come to mine, hand in hand

And you can have bread for free

By the way, do you know why

I said "Bonjour" just now?

That's "good morning" in French


some French pastry has hit the headlines

"Chocolate Pastry"

Our head baker, Gao-Bing, has worked out the recipe

He promises the pastries he makes

taste the same as the original ones

Why are you wearing the ring like that?

Hey, we're running a bakery

Don't drink it straight from the carton

Promise me one thing. Then I will say "Yes"

Another French baking contest?

I want you to win international prizes

and take me to France

I don't want to stay here forever

What's wrong with this place?

You hate Taiwan so much?

Chien-Ming Wang plays in the MLB

Does that mean he hates Taiwan?

I don't know

So what's why I want you to know!

If we're going to spend the rest

of our lives together,

I hope I could see the outside world...

at least once

The outside world?

Your little brother is swamped outside

Go give him a hand

Hey, Bro

Tell you what

If I go to France for the baking contest,

what about the shop?

What about your brother?

What about your dad?

You can work on new recipes

instead of practicing in the temple

You can't follow other people's

recipes forever, right?

If I don't go to the temple,

the kids would fight or use drugs

and get into trouble

Do you understand it?

Can you stop making excuses?

Is it really that difficult for you

to understand me?

I know you really want to go to France

But it's early morning

So stop daydreaming!

OK, forget about it

Ping, that's not what I mean

Let go of me!

Please don't be like that

That's not what I mean. Please, don't

Save that till the night

It's time to start the business


Away from my hometown,

that noisy, little island

I came to Paris

When I was young,

I thought I'd get married

and have children in my hometown


I met my Mr Right

He took me to Paris

where I fell in love with baking



Your French is really good

English OK?

English is OK

I was just saying your French is really good

Thank you

I wonder if I can ask you

Do you know this woman?

This is my mom

Your mom?


Can I meet her?

She died

She died?

I'm sorry. I have no idea

No, it is OK

Was she the head baker?

No, my dad is



Can I meet him?

He is not here

He is to describe the community center?

You know, people they get together?

He is busy...he is playing band

Playing in a band?


Do you, do you want to go and find him?

No, it is OK. Don't trouble yourself



It's $140

I will come back later. Bye bye

No, I can't do that

"I have decided to love you

one hundred million years"

Jesus, are you done?

What was that all about?

None of your business

Wow, it's a cool sax

I'm not bragging

Kenny G. had one like this

Really? Let me see

I got all my false teeth done just for it

You see?

Cool! Cool!

How much did it cost?

Well, not that much

Only $150,000

$150, 000? Show off!

Dad, do you know someone called Sophia Su?

Fxxx! It really costs $150,000!


Do you know her?

She'd been to our shop when I was a child

She had a son called Bread

What? What did you say?


Is he the one in the baking

show you used to watch on TV?

He came here today

He showed me a picture of Mom with Sophia

He said he was looking for you

Is he looking for his dad?

That's impossible!

I was very faithful to your mom

I'd never had any other women

Dad, what are you talking about?

Well, I somehow remember that

your mom loved a book so much when she was young

I think it was written by Sophia something...

Where is the book now?

Maybe it's among the stuff your mom left

Unbelievable! $150,000 for a sax?!

Here it is

Your mom's book

Oh, we always have one

Dad, why didn't you tell me?

I asked you...

to sort out the stuff three years ago

Have you ever listened?

I told you I would burst into tears

when I saw Mom's stuff

Why didn't you do it?

I would burst into tears too

OK, Ping

It's almost time

We should get ready to go to the baking class

Hey, that hurts!

Just ride the bike!

Stop it!
