Something stinks at Chez Flambé, and it's sure not the sweet smell of success! Despite his convincing victory in the Azteca Cocina, Neil can't seem to catch a break. Patrons are sending their orders back, and reviews are calling the now fifteen-year-old chef a "has-been." Not surprisingly, Neil is taking out his frustration on Isabella, Larry, and Angel. And how.

Things go from bad to worse to purely rotten when Neil is charged with trying to poison the mayor. What on earth is going wrong? The answer lies in the far past and a centuries-old curse on the Flambé family. Can Neil break the curse in time to save his restaurant? His friendships? His risotto a la Milanese?

Join Neil, his friends, and his massive ego for another rip-roaring culinary mystery!
