This isn't a novel; it's a poem! It's that beautiful!
Lillian owns a restaurant and on Monday nights, when the restaurant is closed, she teaches a cooking class. This book tells the story of the members of the class and the teacher.
That sounds pretty simplistic but what makes this book so mesmerizing is the writing. It's sumptuous! Every page contains so many delicious metaphors and similes that you just want to eat them.
If you're looking for a book to get lost in for an evening, pick this one up and you won't stop reading until it's done...and then you'll want to start cooking!
