When chef Paul Delamare agrees to help his old friend Christian by teaching at an exclusive residential cookery school in Belgravia, the only thing he expects his students to murder is his taste buds. But on the first night, the unthinkable happens: One of them turns up dead...
Could one of his students be the killer? Or Rose - the owner of the school, a woman with secrets and a murky past? The police are convinced Paul is the culprit. After all, he's good with a blade, was first on the scene - and everyone knows what chefs are really like.
The students are sharpening their knives and if Paul can't solve the mystery fast - as well as teach them how to make a perfect hollandaise sauce - he'll be next to get the chop.
