Inken Bartels

THE LITTLE INN ON THE RIVER SCHLEI

Michelin-star chef Isa Petersen reluctantly travels from London back to her old home on the river Schlei. Her dear old grandmother has left her the little “Dorfkrug” inn in her will, where Isa grew up amidst the sound of clanging pots and pans. Her mother, Jette, turned her back on the family when she was young but now the two of them are to stand side by side in the kitchen in order to fulfill her grandmother’s last wish.

However, tempers soon reach boiling point between the two. Only with the help of Isa’s old school friend Tim have they got a chance of giving the little inn a new lease of life. Sometimes you find happiness where you least expect it...
