Puck is nine years old and lives above his popular restaurant with her father, chef Maro. After the death of her mother, the two of them now live there. Puck misses her mother terribly and her father is always busy at work. She wants nothing more than to help him, but he thinks she is still too young, because 'you have to learn to taste good'.
One evening, when she shares this grief with her cat, the first of seven Taste Ghosts comes to visit. These colorful characters - salty, spicy, sour, fat, umami, bitter and sweet - take Puck to their worlds. There they teach her all about their unique powers. But can they learn to taste Puck so well that she can finally help Maro in his kitchen?
