Aspiring French cook Jacques Fournier arrives in London after the death of his mother. He’s convinced that renowned and irascible British chef Victor is the father he never knew. Jacques locates Victor’s restaurant and pleads with him for an opportunity to work in his kitchen. Having proven his culinary skills, Jacques sets up home and soon happens on his eccentric neighbors: the feisty 70 something Patti, and the sad, waif-like Stella who shows little interest in Jacques and even less in eating food. Intrigued by and attracted to Stella, Jacques plans to tempt her with his finecuisine but is caught red handed stealing the necessary costly ingredients from the restaurant. When confronted by a furious Victor, Jacques is forced to confess his true motive for coming to London. But Victor laughs off the assertion that he might be Jacques’ father and shows him the door.
