OrangeReviewStarAs Series 2 of this delectable British import begins, Gina Benelli (Dawn French) and Sam Vincent (Emilia Fox) continue to test the boundaries of the uneasy professional alliance they have forged after the death of Sam's husband (and Gina's ex-husband), celebrated chef Leo Vincent (Iain Glen). While the women seem to have stabilized the rocky financial status of the Penrose Hotel, the legacy Leo left to Gina, new challenges await, both personally and professionally. From the brilliantly nuanced performances by French and Fox (as well as Glen, whose character died early on in Series 1 but continues as a ghostly narrator) to the gorgeously filmed Cornish setting, everything about this series is top drawer. Mix in an appetizing story line that skillfully tackles everything from family loyalty and marital infidelity to the place food and cooking have in our lives.
VERDICT Fans of British-flavored dramas will be delighted to discover they now have a luscious new binge-worthy treat to savor.
