Tia Mowry will serve up food with a dash of competition this holiday season on Lifetime.

The actress leads the cast and executive produces the upcoming film Yes, Chef! Christmas, the network announced this week.

The project follows a culinary school instructor, played by Mowry, who put both her true career aspirations and personal life on the back burner. But this holiday season, everything will change when she’s invited to compete in an annual holiday cook-off.

During the competition, she builds a connection with a fiery chef played by Luke Humphrey, despite getting off to a rocky start when they first meet.
