Odette, who looks like Linda Lusardi in a DKNY suit and has more zeros at the end of her bank balance than an astronaut's altimeter, decides to throw up the high-powered job that doesn't leave time for relationships and start her own club/restaurant. When the venture seems doomed before it has even begun by a rival chef who is as gorgeous as Jean Christophe Novelli and as temperamental as Marco Pierre White, Odette determines on revenge. Accepting a menial job in her enemy's kitchen, she plots his downfall - but ends up getting her heart broken, fingers burnt and her goose cooked. . .
