Consumed by grief in the wake of his wife's tragic death, London chef Rob Haley (Dougray Scott) leaves the big city behind to open a modest country restaurant, and finds love where he least expects it. After Rob's wife died, he lost his passion for cooking. His confidence subsequently destroyed by a scathing restaurant review, Rob receives a much welcomed visit from his old friend and colleague Gordon Ramsay (playing himself), and summons the courage to pick up the pieces of his shattered life. With his daughter and loyal staff by his side, the once-proud chef sets his sights on a small village, and begins transforming a typical pub into a food-lover's paradise. Rob never expected the move would lead to romance, but after meeting American food critic Kate (Claire Forlani), his life quickly starts to look up again. Later, when Kate's troubled past threatens to sink his happy future, Rob learns that sometimes the last people you expected to stand by your side have a way of becoming the ones you cherish most in life.
