Jillian Reed aspired to becoming the next Julia Child, but the closest she'd gotten was hosting a cable TV cooking show in rural Bliss, Virginia. Even that wouldn't have been so awful, if it weren't for a certain assistant chef whose hayseed mannerisms and country twang were the antithesis of Jill's sophistication.
