Series 2 - Episode 1



The Cornish foodie set return for more fun and games with Dawn French’s supercook Gina now (somewhat uneasily) running the posh Penrose hotel with Sam (Emilia Fox). Both women are former wives of deceased head chef Leo Vincent (Iain Glen) who once again appears as a ghostly choric commentator. Don’t be fooled by the slight soapiness, though – there are many sharp, psychologically acute moments in Dan (Mr Selfridge) Sefton’s script and a couple of interesting new characters to get your teeth into.


Business is booming at the Penrose a year after Leo's death, but there is trouble in store for the two women running things. Gina is left reeling when two men from her past reappear - one welcome, one not at all - while a frustrated Sam decides to show initiative personally and professionally, with potentially disastrous consequences. Return of the drama, starring Dawn French and Emilia Fox.
