John Burton Race and his family have returned to England from their year-long French Leave. John is now keen to get back to work. With the support of his wife, Kim, he has decided that instead of returning to the high-pressure cauldron of the London culinary world and the Michelin-star roundabout, he wants to open a restaurant in Devon.
The stakes are high - he and Kim will be investing their own money and starting again. We follow the family's fortunes as they sell their house in Reading and start their new life in the country. John will scour Devon's rich natural larder to source the best local ingredients as he develops and cooks new recipes for the restaurant. Quality of life is paramount for John and Kim. He will continue to cook at home and she will help out in the restaurant, whilst still doing her other full-time job - looking after the children.
This is a cookery show that takes us into the heart of a family as they attempt to cook themselves some happiness in Devon
