Gordon revisits the Glass House Restaurant in Ambleside. When he first went there it was in meltdown. Saturday nights were a disaster, orders in the kitchen were going AWOL, the food wasn't cooked properly and the customers were complaining. Not only was the chef in tears, but the owner was so deep in debt that he'd switched his mobile phone off.
Gordon revisits the Walnut Tree Inn. In 2004, it was in big trouble, with no head chef and dwindling customers, and the owner had been forced to sell the family home to keep the place afloat.
Gordon revisits Moore Place where we see whether Gordon's fast-track guide to restaurant success helped these brewery whiz kids transform their failing ex-Berni Inn into a profitable business.
Gordon revisits Bonapartes in Silsden, West Yorkshire. Twenty-one-year-old Head Chef Tim specialises in fine dining. He has ambitions to be a TV chef and one day hopes to open restaurants in London, Paris and New York. Unfortunately, as Gordon discovers, Tim has no customers, can't even cook an omelette and inadvertently nearly poisons Gordon with his signature dish of rancid scallops.
Gordon returns to La Riviera - now renamed Abstract - a fine dining restaurant in Inverness. Owned by multi-millionaire Barry Larson and costing £8,000 a week to run, the place boasted top French chef Loic Lefebvre and an impeccably-trained kitchen staff, all of them on a mission to bring sophisticated French cooking to the home of the haggis, but the locals weren't biting and the restaurant was mostly empty.
The owner of Momma Cherri's Soul Food Shack, Charita Jones, was produced a menu of irresistible unique classics from the Deep South, but at the same time faced financial disaster. Gordon succeeded in shutting her out of the kitchen, getting the chef back on the boil and putting the soul back into the business. Gordon now returns to see whether she has got what it takes to make the next step up.
