Kabul Kitchen Season 2.
Taken hostage by the Taliban, Jacky is his jailers’ worst nightmare. When he’s finally released, he’s bankrupt and his restaurant in Kabul has crashed. But no way is he returning to Paris. Jacky is determined to get his business up and running, even if it means becoming a spy for the Americans through their ally Colonel Amanullah. Jacky will get caught up in an extremely dangerous and nerve-wracking game. And despite his ardent desire to stay in Kabul, he might do better getting out of the country before it’s too late…
Gilbert Melki (Jacky) and Simon Abkarian (Amanullah) are supported by up-and-coming talents : in particular Louis-Do de Lencquesaing playing Jacky’s sworn enemy, the opportunist Paul Braque; and Karina Testa as the worthy daughter of Amanullah.
