Roland is a fantastic chef who was on the brink of success 15 years ago, but has since lost the sparkle and drive needed to win that long coveted Michelin star. When he puts his mind to it he can cook with the best of them, but laziness gets the better of him, much to the annoyance of the restaurant's manager and Roland's secret admirer, Caroline (Katherine Parkinson). Joining them in the kitchen is quirky waitress Kiki (Isy Suttie), the hotel's owner Celia (Maggie Steed) and ambitious new apprentice chef, Skoose (Stephen Wight), whose ambition it is to replace the constantly under-pressure and long-suffering Bib!
