After all, he’s good with a blade, was first on the scene – and everyone knows what chefs are really like. It all boils down to murder.The students are sharpening their knives and if Paul can’t solve the mystery fast – as well as teach them how to make a perfect hollandaise sauce – he’ll be next to get the chop.
