Frenchman Jean Christophe Novelli comes from the gourmet capital of the world. He is convinced that food made with fresh ingredients at home will always taste better than a takeaway and, with that in mind, Jean Christophe heads to Enfield to take on the local Thai takeaway. Two people who regularly order in from there are accountant Kate and sales manager Michelle.
These young professionals are too exhausted after a long day at the office to bother with the kitchen, and would rather "kick back" with a glass of wine and a Thai chicken curry.
Can Jean Christophe persuade them to change their ways and head for the kitchen instead of the phone when they're hungry – and will he succeed in beating the takeaway on price, speed and taste?
