Jojo's life is Raw, the thriving Dublin restaurant where she works as a commis chef. In this kitchen, Jojo has finally found the perfect outlet for all her pent up energy - she loves the camaraderie and the intense adrenaline buzz of life in a restaurant and, most of all, working there has awakened her passion for food and cooking. It's not perfect of course - Tanya, the restaurant manager is constantly stressed, and always on Jojo's case, while Tanya's husband and head chef Mal, is a wayward genius, with the emphasis heavily on the wayward. Sous chef Geoff is Australian, gay and, during a service, without doubt the hardest taskmaster Jojo has ever worked for. But she gets on with virtually all the staff - Pavel, the shy Czech waiter, even Tiny the huge, silent African kitchen porter. And then there's her best friend and housemate Bobby - Raw's head barman and Dublin's chief womaniser, who now seems to be falling for student waitress Rebecca. But what Jojo can't figure out, or doesn't want to think about, is why the thought of Bobby and Rebecca together bothers her so much. Into this mix arrives Shane, Jojo's older and supposedly more sensible brother looking to her to sort him out.
Raw is a warm and exhilarating 6 part ensemble relationship drama set in the most highly charged of environments. The kitchen is literally a pressure cooker and things are about to boil over . . .
