The Food Of Love by Anthony Capella 0

June 1, 2009

My Grandmother is an amazing lady. She’s good at sooooo many things – she’s funny (hilarious, in fact), smart and witty, very very popular, beautiful, such fun company to hang out with ANNNNNND she recommends really really good books!

Obviously knowing about my food obsession, she sent me a book in the post that she thought I would enjoy (this book travelled over 10,000 miles to get to me)…..

There’s something special about borrowing a book from someone in this day and age of and the internet (I sound 107 years old) but it’s truuuuuue…..when someone cares enough to send you a book that you easily could have purchased and where the postage costs more than the book three times over, it means a lot….so thanks and big hugs to Yi.

ANYWAY – on to the review.

From the very first page, I was hooked, not only is this a love story with more undulations than the Great Wall of China, it is jam paaaccccccccked with cooking and food tips, recipes and descriptions of tear-worthy meals. Set in Rome, we follow the story of Laura, an American University student who decides overnight that she will only go out with men who can cook. She meets Tommaso and he immediately convinces her that he is a famous chef, all the while he is a humble waiter….but his bestie, Bruno, IS in fact a phenom. chef….who cooks behind the scenes to save Tommaso’s butt.

Things, however, start to get hairy when Bruno starts to fall for Laura too….he’s torn between cooking for the girl to help his friend and not cooking for her so that she leaves Tommaso / stops wanting to be with him.

I laughed, I cried, My mouth watered…….

Couldn’t put it down. Read it in 2 days.

If you don’t have someone to send it to you, buy it here
