Preview by Jack Foley
THINGS are about to heat up with a British romantic comedy that will warm both your heart and appetite: Love’s Kitchen is released on DVD on July 11, 2011, by 2020 Films, following hot on the heels of its cinema release.
Inspired by the true story of John Haley, the landlord of Kate Middleton’s local pub The Old Boot Inn in Stanford Dingley, this ensemble British comedy stars Dougray Scott (Desperate Housewives, Mission Impossible 2) as Rob Haley, a talented chef and restaurateur in London, is grief stricken after losing his wife in a tragic automobile accident.
As his life begins to spiral out of control, he also loses his magic touch in the kitchen. After a terrible review from a food critic, old friend and world-famous chef Gordon Ramsay (Himself, Hell’s Kitchen) pays him a visit which inspires him to take control and reclaim the life he once had.
Rob, his daughter and his loyal staff leave the troubled past behind and move to a village to turn a run-down countryside pub into a local gourmet eatery.
As the doors open to the new pub Kate Templeton (Claire Forlani, Meet Joe Black, CSI: New York), an American food critic with a troubled love life enters Rob’s life.
The last thing Rob needs is an uppity critic with a bad taste in men to ruin his new life.
Love’s Kitchen also stars Simon Callow, Peter Bowles, Cheri Lunghi and Joshua Bowman and boasts picturesque British scenery.
