An inspirational chef, Warwick Hedges - aka Mr Toad meets King Lear - runs an up market restaurant in the Cambridgeshire Fens.

His son Jack works alongside his father, which makes him permanently anxious. They are assisted by Samuel an earthy odd-job man "who crawled out of the slime with the eels" and Zofia, a Polish waitress, who - in later series - becomes a single parent with a baby called Dillie.

The mixture of food, family relationships and Fenland legend is handled with writer Nick Warburton's characteristic deft comic touch.
