We met the main characters of COOKING in Year One, specifically in visits to Homespun Theater. Steve Vincente is Max Randolph's half-brother, and Audrey Hathaway is the main romantic lead of the ensemble at Homespun.
Now, it's time for their story. Steve has returned to Tabor to work
Audrey has two passions: cooking and theater. When Joel Randolph offers her a chance to combine them both and start an experimental dinner theater at Homespun, she is in her glory.
Audrey and Steve are teamed up, first cast as Romeo and Juliet, then working on the dinner theater, then helping to protect Max and Tony from the intrusions of the paparazzi as they prepare for their wedding. Both of them have a lot of baggage to deal with, but the question is if they can learn to accept each other's help in dealing with it, or that baggage and their busy lives will destroy the partnership before it can really begin.
