Summary
Gabriel Lightfoot, originally from a northern England mill town, is making good in London as executive chef at the once-splendid Imperial Hotel. But his integrity, to say nothing of his sanity, in under constant challenge from the competing demands of a multinational staff, gimlet-eyed hotel management, and secret plans to start his own restaurant. Not to mention the worker found dead in the basement..
Summary
Gabriel Lightfoot, the executive chef at the posh Imperial Hotel, has more than one pot set to boil over. Beside the unusual nuisance of brash diners, unpredictable kitchen staff, and an absolute ogre of a genreal manager, Gabriel finds further difficulty just under his nose when a Ukranian porter turns up dead. Throw in a mysterious woman from Belarus, add a dash of family trauma, and it's obvious the beleagured chef is overseeing a complicated menu that even he might not be able to master
