The workings of a Victorian kitchen and their society never fails to fascinate.

Love this series, have watched it twice over the years and enjoyed it just as much the second time. Excellent acting, interesting characters and plot lines.

The series starts off well, engaging viewers in the life of an assistant cook who becomes a king's mistress and a superb chef. However, the plot loses focus from the episode "For Love or Money." Comparisons may be unfair but Bramwell -- also about a woman trying to make it in a man's world in Victorian England -- is a far better show in every way.
