Summary

Gina was once married to Leo Vincent, a successful entrepreneur, chef and hotel owner in Cornwall. Leo owes much of his success to Gina’s exceptional cooking, but since leaving her for the glamorous Sam, his business has continued to thrive. When Sam has suspicions that Leo is having an affair she confides in Gina, confident that she’ll recognize the signs. Only to later discover that it’s Gina herself who is the ‘other woman’. The secrets and scandals that spill out are proof that sleeping with another woman’s husband is never a good idea – even if he was your husband first. As Sam and Gina try to fix their broken families, will a friendship rise from the ashes of betrayal or will they tear each other apart?

Reviews

The series has offered a visual feast but it’s the sure-footed storytelling and strong central performances that has got me hooked.

Radio Times

This wonderful comedy drama is Sky 1’s most successful drama of the year.

Dawn French and Iain Glen are cooking up a storm in Sky 1’s tasty new drama.

The Mirror

There is an impressive cast for this new four-part drama by Dan Sefton. Dawn French tops the bill as a Sicilian cook called Gina who is divorced from chef and hotel owner Leo, played by Iain Glen. She also happens to be friends with his new partner Sam (Emilia Fox), who suspects Leo is cheating on her. Gina, of course, would know all the telltale signs. Sheila Hancock co-stars as Leo’s mother Mimi.

But the truly tasty asn intriguing thing about this drama is its sudden change of direction at the end of the first instalment. Set in Cornwall it looks beautiful as well. But it is not unalloyed cheer. A suicidal Michelin judge Sam and Leo’s troubled anorexic daughter add a dark and piquant edge to an ultimately satisfying platter.
