Poisoned Salmon Cheek murder mystery

I saw this movie in the 1980s or 90s.  It was set in the Pacific Northwest

Female chef opens restaurant/inn and for opening night is having a large dinner for a number of people including food critics.  Lots of work has gone into the meal , especially the salmon.  Local policeman is there too.

One food critic in particular is a pompous twit and demands most succulent morsel (salmon cheek) and promptly dies of poisoning.  Chef is main suspect since she cooked the food.

Everyone is trapped in the restaurant/inn (by weather I think) while the chef and the policeman solve the crime.

 

Got something to say?
