As the restaurant prepares to open to industry and press, Diana has roped in Kwame and her best friend Nayani to work for free.
But Easton (Erik Thomson) has gone full control-freak, forcing Diana (Natalie Abbott) into cooking bullshit crème brûlée to go along with his bullshit ancient French fine dining menu.
As disasters pile-up – including a broken sous vide, venison farmers hellbent on sexual favours, and nobody being able to get Jim’s shotgun off him before the guests arrive – Easton takes his rage out on his young staff. Diana decides she can’t take much more of this and, with Kwame’s (Justin Amankwah) help, decides to take control and serves a desert that, much to Easton’s dismay, completely steals the show.
