Louisa Trotter is a headstrong young woman who has one ambition in life: to become the best cook in England. She gets a job as an assistant cook under Chef de cuisine Monsieur Alex in the home of Lord Henry Norton. Louisa is sharp-tongued and holds her own but she also realizes that she has a lot to learn. When Lord Henry returns home early from his August holiday in Scotland and Monsieur Alex is still away, Louisa finds herself having to prepare a dinner for 10 guests - including the Prince of Wales.
