Based in Cornwall, England, the show revolves around chef Leo, who is a successful entrepreneur and hotel owner. Leo is known far and wide for the delicious food served at his hotel, and seems to be leading a happy life with his beautiful wife, Sam. However, things turn topsy turvy after Leo’s secret affair with his ex-wife, Gina, comes to light.
Season 1 of ‘Delicious, which consisted of four episodes, first made its way to viewers screens in December 2016, and went on to become Sky 1’s most-watched original drama in 2016, with an average viewership of 1.87 million. Since then, the show has seen two more seasons air, and now Now, viewers are curious as to whether Leo, Sam, Gina and co will be back for another season of lip-smacking drama.

In the show, Iain Glen of Game of Thrones fame plays the role of Leo Vincent, while Emilia Fox plays the role of his beautiful, young wife, Sam. Meanwhile, Dawn French plays the role of his ex-wife Gina Benelli, and Tanya Reynolds plays the role of Teresa Benelli – Leo and Gina’s daughter. In addition Ruari O’Connor plays the role of Leo and Sam’s son, Michael Vincent.

Delicious Plot: What is it about?
As mentioned earlier, ‘Delicious’ revolves around celebrity chef Leo and his famous eatery, the Penrose Hotel. Known across Cornwall for his unique delicacies, the secret ingredient for Leo’s outstanding culinary success is his collection of recipes, which are kept hidden from the outside world.
However, in the show, we come to know that Leo owes much of his culinary success to Gina. Yet, even after he leaves Gina for the glamorous and striking Sam, his business continues to thrive. Leo has a son with Sam, and seems to be a settled family man leading a happy life, when disaster strikes.
Sam, based on suspicious behavior on Leo’s part, begins to suspect that he’s having an affair. Left with no one reliable to confide in, Sam approaches Gina and confides in her, confident of Gina’s ability to recognize signs of Leo’s infidelity. However, as it turns out, Sam soon realizes that the other woman in Leo’s life is none other than Gina herself. What follows is much drama as scandalous secrets start to spill out, and Gina and Sam try to mend their broken families while having a go at each other.
Things get even more complicated as the show heads into Season 2, and Gina and Sam are faced with handling Leo’s sudden death. If that was not enough drama for a season, we soon learn Sam’s son and Gina’s daughter have feelings for each other – the story only gets denser with every episode, keeping viewers glued to their screens. As viewers learn more and more about Gina and Sam’s life, they are left wondering whether the two women will form an unusual friendship or whether they will tear each other apart to settle scores.
This complex story revolving around lust, jealousy, and fame becomes even stronger owing to the show’s brilliant screenplay and the solid performances developed by each and every member of its talented cast. Understandably, the show received considerable critical acclaim, and even enjoys quite some popularity among viewers.
