Delicious Trailer Online
There is no recipe for recovery

Fans of Sherlock’s Molly – played by Louise Brealey – who are looking for a fix between series will be happy to learn she’s playing a key role in Tammy Riley-Smith’s new indie, Delicious, which features a romance between an aspiring chef (Nico Rogner) and Brealey’s troubled young woman. Check out the first trailer for the film below. 

The plot sees aspiring French cook Jacques Fournier (Rogner) arriving in London after the death of his mother. He’s convinced that renowned and irascible British chef Victor (Adrian Scarborough) is the father he never knew. Jacques locates Victor's restaurant and pleads with him for an opportunity to work in his kitchen. Having proven his culinary skills, Jacques sets up home and soon happens on his eccentric neighbours: the feisty septuagenarian Patti (Sheila Hancock), and the sad, waif-like Stella (Brealey) who shows little interest in Jacques and even less in eating food.

Intrigued by and attracted to Stella, Jacques plans to tempt her with his fine cuisine but is caught red handed stealing the necessary costly ingredients from the restaurant. When confronted by a furious Victor, Jacques is forced to confess his true motive for coming to London. But Victor laughs off the assertion that he might be Jacques' father and shows him the door. 


His world shattered, Jacques returns home only to discover Stella unconscious following a binge on junk food, booze and pills. Recognising a fellow lost soul, Jacques refuses to leave Stella's side until she consumes something. He sets them both a challenge: for him to prepare her a feast so delicate and alluring that she cannot resist. But in the mental struggle that follows, Stella's eating disorder may prove just too much for love to overcome and for Jacques and Stella's dysfunctional romance to survive.

Promising a bittersweet, funny and touching romance, Delicious has been doing the festival rounds, but doesn’t yet have a release date in the UK.
