The Nook on the Square
For sisters Kate and Alex from Rugby their food business is going to be a family affair. Kate has decided that her house, which sits in the heart of the picturesque local village square, is the perfect location to launch a cafe, so she's sacrificing the entire ground floor to make way for it. For now, Kate, her husband and two small children will be camping out in the attic. But with all the investment coming from Kate, how will Alex like having her sister as boss?
In the final episode of this new series, businessman and restaurateur, Russell Norman comes to the rescue of two sisters who can't cook and have no professional catering experience. He gives them some much-needed food for thought on how to maximise the takings from their limited daytime menu and encourage them to think much bigger.
Russell Norman sees that the sisters have spotted a gap in the market in this quiet little village, but they'll need to work hard and learn quickly to make money from their menu of scones and tea. For inspiration, Russell takes the sisters to Paris and to one of London's poshest hotels to show them a range of profitable dishes and how to deliver the type of personalised service that has people coming back for more. But with difficulty recruiting a chef, when opening day comes around, will their home-made cakes and savouries be enough to entice the locals through their front door, and will the sisters' relationship survive the stress of running their own business?
