Stacey Dooley: Gypsy Kids in Crisis
Caught between anti-gypsy hostility, demands of child protection services, and growing up in struggling families, Stacey explores if there’s any hope for Hungary’s Roma gypsy kids in care.
With unique access to these ‘relief’ chef agencies, Kitchen 999: Emergency Chefs follows these rapid-response cooks as they race to troubled restaurants across the U.K. Armed only with their knives and culinary skill, they must master unfamiliar menus, handle inexperienced staff and satisfy demanding owners, because in this hire and fire industry, they simply can’t afford to fail.
In this raw and fast-paced film, Lancashire chef, Justine Forrest, is in over her head at a fine dining, luxury hotel in London. Meanwhile, fiery chef, Leslie Wills, rushes to a Devon manor house only to find a crewless kitchen and an ambitious menu to conjure up in a race against time. Finally, avant-garde chef, James Cathcart, must put his culinary aspirations on hold to wrangle an inexperienced assistant and churn out fast food at a heaving Midlands pub.
Pushed to their technical limits, forced to swallow their pride and restrain their anger, will these emergency chefs be able to maintain their reputation and save the day?
