Starring Lenny Henry, who has appeared in many groundbreaking British comedy productions since the 1980s, CHEF! sees him playing an overbearing head chef, Gareth Blackstock, who works in the kitchen of a posh restaurant called Le Chateau Anglais. Grappling with his staff whose collective enthusiasm for the job wanes with every passing second, Gareth's attempts to motivate his workers and keep the restaurant's reputation afloat result in some hilarious scenes. The entire first season is collected here.
