Ben Bakewell is a master baker with a unique gift that makes him the grand master of his culinary craft. More commonly known as ‘Cake’ he meets up with Ravuth, a Cambodian man residing in England, who has spent the majority of his life trying to trace his long lost family.
As a youngster, Ravuth stumbled across a previously undiscovered plant that is the source of an incredible and unique spice. The unlikely pair team up in order to search for both the elusive plant and Ravuth’s lost kin.
Jed Culver is a disgraced D.E.A. agent whose bitterness for his old employer, and lust for revenge, lead him along a deadly path as he also pursues the plant, although for far more sinister gains.
This thrilling, and yet sometimes hilarious quest, takes you from the glitz and glamour of the fashionable London restaurant scene, to the wild, untamed tropical forests surrounding the Cardamom mountains region of South East Asia, as the participants race to discover the whereabouts of the remarkable plant and find Ravuth’s misplaced family.
