Episode cast overview:
Michel Valentine
Agent #1 (as Barry Sigismaondi)


Jack was eager to offer his new neighbor's restaurant chef, Michel Valentine, a customary free feast and vice versa. However, he goes berserk when he finds Michel copied his rack of lamb, and starts a culinary war by stealing his divine bread cook, creepy Adam. Mimi supposedly stays above the boys' childish games, to spare Nolita further risk. In fact Mimi is instantly seduced by irresistible stud Michel Valentine, who proves a formidable lover for her. Michel is also a mighty adversary for Jack's team, which is outclassed until they desert the daunting duel one by one. Ultimately only rookie Jim, who is against such vendetta in principle, proves his unconditional loyalty. Written by KGF Vissers
