As his life begins to spiral out of control, he also loses his magic touch in the kitchen. After a terrible review from a food critic, old friend and chef Gordon Ramsay (Himself) pays him a visit which inspires him to take control and reclaim the life he once had. Rob, his daughter and his loyal staff leave the troubled past behind and move to a village to turn a run-down countryside pub into a local gourmet eatery. As the doors open to the new pub Kate Templeton (Claire Forlani), an American food critic with a troubled love life enters Rob’s life. The last thing Rob needs is an uppity critic with a bad taste in men to ruin his new life.
