A tough-cookie, media agent who's clawed her way to the top and a con-man, who wants to open a cookery school.
Add in a washed-up celebrity chef whose career needs re-building…
An aging rock star - fresh from rehab, and a Sloane Ranger food writer who gets her own TV show…
Bring to the boil:
At a Gourmet Food Festival, in Ireland, where anything goes!
When media agent, Hilary Hargreaves, travels to Ireland to look at a campaign for a new cookery school, she meets a blast from her past - the romantic but reckless chef, Mickey Lloyd, who is hell-bent on resurrecting his flagging career. Her tough demeanour is rocked, as it becomes apparent that Mickey's intentions involve more than a stint behind a stove in his quest to pursue her. But as plans for the school gain momentum, she realises that she's developing more than a passing interest in reformed alcoholic, Long Tom Hendry, who owns the crumbling old mansion where the school will be homed. Hilary has many ingredients to juggle, with her demanding client list, which looks set to boil over if she doesn't keep control. From London's bustling, Soho, to Southern Ireland and the sunny shores of the Caribbean, has Hilary got too much on her plate and is she really prepared to risk it all for love?
