Cathy Scarlet and Tom Feather have decided to create the best catering company in Dublin. They have talent, premises - even a few contacts. But not everyone is as pleased by the idea of 'Scarlet Feather' as they are. Tom's parents wanted him to follow in the family business, and Cathy's mother-in-law believes Cathy should be at home. Yet neither Cathy's marriage, nor Tom's relationship with his girlfriend, are everything they appear to be, and Cathy and Tom are struggling to maintain their emotional ties amidst the catering triumphs and disasters of Scarlet Feather.
