Storyline

Rob Haley (Dougray Scott), an up-and-coming chef and restaurateur in London, is grief-stricken when he loses his wife. With encouragement from his infamous friend and real life TV Chef Gordon Ramsay, Rob decides to spice up his life by turning a run-down country pub into a gourmet restaurant. His food catches the eye - and taste buds - of beautiful American food critic Kate Templeton (Claire Forlani) and they soon both write a recipe for love that leaves both their hearts - and their stomachs - in full.

I love food porn but there is a lack of money shoots of food making
22 June 2014 | by See all my reviews

Rob Haley (Dougray Scott) is a successful chef in London left heartbroken when his wife is killed in a car accident. His restaurant 'The World's End' suffers a deadly review and business dries up. His friend Gordon Ramsay is horrified at his state. Rob visits the sleepy country pub that his wife was going to buy and meets American food critic Kate Templeton (Claire Forlani). She's moved back in with her English father estrange since she was 12 after the failure of her relationship. He rediscovers the love of food, gathers up a couple of his old kitchen crew, and buys the rundown pub. It's a horribly slow start. Then Kate tries his food. Food critic Guy Witherspoon (Simon Callow) comes by.

I really hate the Gordon Ramsay cameo. It takes me completely out of the movie. This is a simple predictable rom-com. I'm not railing against rom-com clichés. They're clichés for a reason. For a foodie rom-com, this needs much more food porn. Personally I love the visual delights of food porn. That's the one element missing here. The leads are perfectly lovely. The evil people are perfectly douche like. The little girl should be younger and cuter. It's not aiming for much and that's what it does.
