Chef! – Complete Series announced for August!

If you have not had the pleasure of watching this show, take it from me that it is simply wonderful. I’ve taped all of the shows from PBS with the exception of the very last one and watched them unknown number of times.

Just wonderful. Funny, cruel, biting… did I say funny?

Gareth Blackstock (Lenny Henry) is a master chef at Le Chateau Anglais and rules his fiefdom, his kitchen, with an iron tongue and the ever present threat of unspeakable violence (which never comes to pass). He takes on an apprentice to his kitchen, Everton, that drives him up the wall. In the first year, the kitchen staff was outstanding – the sous chef is just as driven as Gareth but quieter until she’s in charge for a bit. Gareth’s wife Janice (Caroline Lee-Johnson) provides a welcome counter part as she feels neglected (and probably is) to her driven spouse.

I’m not going to try to summarize any of the shows because I wouldn’t do them justice. Just don’t ask for the salt.
