Born into the servant class, Louisa Leyton rises from the scullery to become the best chef in Edwardian London and manager of the most elegant -- and discreet -- hotel in town. She learns the rules of high society from powerful men captivated by her beauty, but she never sheds her Cockney accent or attitude. Even in the throes of World War I, Louisa proves she can take whatever life dishes out and remain in a class all her own. Based on the true story of Rosa Lewis, a culinary genius and owner of London's venerable Cavendish Hotel, this acclaimed BBC series dramatizes the life of an indomitable woman in stories full of humor and heart. Stars Gemma Jones as Louisa and Christopher Cazenove as Charlie, the dashing love of her life. Special features include a biography of Rosa Lewis, Edwardian period background, photo gallery, and cast filmographies.
