As the title suggests, this is about the world of food, particularly the life of longtime food channel TV star Augusta "Gus" Simpson who discovers she's not a job-secure as she thought. Thrown in with a tempermental upstart beauty queen, bedeviled by two daughters who aren't achieving to Gus's high (not to say unreachable) standards, saddled with a new (although handsome) prep cook, dissed by the food channel owner, Gus enters the fight of her professional life. Lots of fun. Nice choice of gift for a foodie friend. It's a 4.
