Whites is a comedy series set in in the kitchen of a country house hotel. The series follows the trials and tribulations of head chef Roland White whose ambition to win a coveted Michelin star has been ruined by his lack of zest and second-in-command Bib.
Chef Roland White and his team pull together under the pressure of a busy dinner service.
Caroline is annoyed that Roland has yet again failed to update the menu and pushes him to come up with a new one. As Bib is so keen to introduce new dishes, Roland sees this as an opportunity and asks him to design the new menu. Roland is troubled when celebrity chef Shay Marshall arrives at the hotel in his helicopter. He is one of Bib's heroes and Bib begins to model the new menu on Shay's unusual recipes. Shay's flirting with Caroline tips Roland over the edge and he confides in Bib his real reasons for disliking Shay. How will this affect the team, and how will Roland feel when Shay comes to dinner?
A car convention takes place at Thaxted Manor. Bib is under pressure from his wife as they are desperately trying for a baby. He races against time to make it to the fertility clinic, which is not easy when Skoose is lurking round every corner. Skoose is put in charge and uses that position to his own advantage, much to the delight of Kiki. Roland is enamoured by a beautiful visitor to the hotel and sets about impressing her with his cooking skills - which Caroline certainly has something to say about.
The White House restaurant undergoes a health and safety inspection.
Roland finally gets a chance to be in the spotlight when he is invited to do a spot on the TV show Sunday Chefs. It is just a pity he is chosen to do it on a day where they have a function for 300 people at the hotel, much to the annoyance of Bib and Caroline.
Roland is feeling lost without Bib, who is planning his new life in Australia. While the White House staff prepare their acts for the talent show, Roland begrudgingly interviews for a new sous chef, which he makes sure Bib knows about when he pops in to say his goodbyes. Kiki is upset that Skoose refuses to perform at the party while excitedly talking to Axel about his act, much to Skoose's frustration. Meanwhile, Robin has to attend to a pig, leaving Caroline at the mercy of Celia's bartending. Will Caroline finally let her hair down? And will Roland have to perform on his own? With the party in full swing, drinks flowing, anything can happen.
