Synopsis

Having burned all his bridges, volatile chef Easton West finds himself with one more chance in a high-end Shanghai restaurant. But when opening night turns into a pig-slinging disaster, the subsequent social media tsunami washes Easton ashore in the Adelaide Hills. Arriving like a pariah to a dysfunctional family he abandoned 30 years previously, it's only his outspoken 19-year-old pastry cook niece, Diana, who shows any interest. Easton realises that Diana represents everything he’s not – young, female and fresh – and takes her under his wing in an effort to crawl his way back to relevance. But what price is Diana willing to pay to work with her infamously difficult uncle?
