Synopsis

Nigel Slater loves cooking while his mother prefers to warm canned food in a water pot for dinner. After Nigel's mother dies, his father begins to spend his evenings with newly divorced cleaner Mrs Potter, whose signature lemon meringue pie is a hit with Mr Slater. The two embark on a relationship, and soon move to the country with Nigel, who finds solace in home economics classes at school, and uses his improved culinary skills to gain his father's affections, thus becoming Mrs. Potter's rival.
