Though the adult Blaire siblings have agreed to keep things calm and amiable on a trip to stay with their elderly father, each arrives, in true Blaire style, with a secret agenda. But plans are derailed when Lizzie, the youngest, turns up late with a burnt hand, impending criminal charges, and a damp family cookbook: Fannie Farmer’s Boston Cooking School.
The now-ruined cookbook is the last vestige of a more idyllic time, when there were four siblings, not three, a public family reputation to uphold, and a mother, whose handwritten notes in the margins of the recipes are now their last link to her after the accident years ago.
