Rosie Lourde is making her feature film directing debut on Romance on the Menu, a romantic comedy from the Steve Jaggi Company now shooting in Brisbane.
Scripted by Americans Casie Tabanou and Alison Spuck, who wrote Jaggi’s Back of the Net, the film stars Canadian Cindy Busby (Heartland) as New York restaurateur Caroline Wilson, who inherits a café in Lemon Myrtle Cove, Australia.
As she renovates the business to sell, she begins to fall in love with the place, its people and charming local chef Simon Cook (Tim Ross).
While her ex-fiancé Nathaniel (Joey Vieira) begging her to take him back and pressing work commitments back home, she is faced with a big decision: Give up her New York life and stay in Lemon Myrtle Cove or return to the big city.
Naomi Sequeira plays Beth with Marita Wilcox as Marla,
