Then one bad review from a food critic, and the customers of his once -thriving restaurant start to dry up. But a chat with his old friend and world-famous chef Gordon Ramsay (Himself, Hells' Kitchen), inspires Rob to take control and reclaim the life he once had. Rob, his daughter and his loyal staff are now determined to turn a run-down countryside pub into a local gourmet eatery. On opening day, Kate Templeton (Claire Forlani, Meet Joe Black), an American food critic with a troubled love life, enters the pub. The last thing Rob needs is an uppity critic with a bad taste for men. Attitudes clash until finally Rob's charm and magical dessert trifle wins over her taste buds - and her heart. But not all the locals are happy with the fame and the traffic the up-and-coming restaurant brings to their neighborhood, and a few try to have it closed down for good.

They receive a fantastic review, and Rob and Kate both discover that the recipe for true happiness is a pinch of teamwork and a whole lot of love....more
