Laura, a twentysomething American, is on her first trip to Italy. She’s completely enamored of the art, beauty, and, of course, food that Rome has to offer. Soon she’s enamored of the handsome and charming Tomasso, too, who tells her he’s a chef at the famed Templi restaurant and proceeds to woo her with his gastronomic creations. But Tomasso hasn’t been entirely truthful—he’s really just a waiter. The master chef behind the tantalizing meals is his talented but shy friend Bruno, who loves Laura from afar. Thus begins a classic comedy of errors full of romance, culinary magic, and the sensual atmosphere of Italy. The result is a delightful debut novel to be savored by all readers of romantic comedy, connoisseurs of armchair travel, and the ever-growing audience for writings about food.

The peasant food contrasts sharply with the overworked dishes which Bruno prepares in Rome's top restaurant, but what I found most interesting was the way that the food in the countryside of Northern Italy differed from that of Rome.Nov 25 2012 | Read Full Review of The Food of Love
