Synopsis

Feature-length BBC comedy drama based on the memoirs of food writer and broadcaster Nigel Slater. In 1950s Wolverhampton, nine-year-old Nigel (Freddie Highmore) is left with his distant father (Ken Stott) and new housekeeper Joan Potter (Helena Bonham Carter) after the death of his adored mother (Victoria Hamilton). Unlike his mother, whose greatest culinary achievement was toast, Joan is an excellent cook, and Nigel is soon competing with her for his father's affections by trying to outshine her in the kitchen.
