The Cooks is about two inner-city Sydney restaurants and the staff that run them, mostly in their early twenties. Gabe (Toby Schmitz) is a ruthless head chef of the "Snatch & Grab" restaurant who has just returned from a stint working the kitchens of Europe. Running the competing restaurant (R & R) directly across the road is his ex-girlfriend Ruth (Kate Atkinson). Then there's Gabe's mate and chef Sachin (Nicholas Brown) who is seeing Carmelita (Emma Lung) who works as a waitress and a chef in the "R & R" restaurant. The environment created by working in a restaurant ensures that the characters explore the connection between sex, simmering relationships and the steamy kitchens they work in.

The Cooks - Cooks' Cottage - Netflix
Cooks' Cottage, also known as Captain Cook's Cottage, is located in the Fitzroy Gardens, Melbourne, Australia. The cottage was constructed in 1755 in the English village of Great Ayton, North Yorkshire, by the parents of Captain James Cook, James and Grace Cook, and was brought to Melbourne in 1934 by Sir Russell Grimwade. It is a point of conjecture among historians whether James Cook, the famous navigator, ever lived in the house, but almost certainly he visited his parents at the house. The inside of the cottage includes centuries-old antiques and is stylised in the way of the 18th century, as are the clothes of the volunteer guides.
