The delicious second season of Aftertaste is guaranteed to whet your appetite when it premieres this July on ABC TV.

Following a much-loved first season, Erik Thomson returns as celebrity chef Easton West, and rising star Natalie Abbott as his niece and pastry chef extraordinaire Diana. 

After throwing away his last chance at fame, Easton (Erik Thomson) has settled into obscurity rather well.

However, Easton’s new life out of the public eye is shattered by Diana’s (Natalie Abbott) return to Uraidla, as she flaunts her successful new London career and love life. Still furious with her family’s secrets and lies, Diana is desperate to prove how much better off she is without them.

Emotions – and pre-heated ovens – run high between Easton and Diana, but both must put their troubles aside when a secret from the past throws the West family into chaos.
