A delicious book - funny, foodie and romantic. The definitive Roman romantic comedy' Richard Curtis

Laura Patterson is an American exchange student in Rome who, fed up with being inexpertly groped by her young Italian beaus, decides there's only one sure-fire way to find a sensual man: date a chef. Then she meets Tomasso, who's handsome, young - and cooks in the exclusive Templi restaurant. Perfect. Except, unbeknownst to Laura, Tomasso is in fact only a waiter at Templi - it's his shy friend Bruno who is the chef.

But Tomasso is the one who knows how to get the girls, and when Laura comes to dinner he persuades Bruno to help him with the charade. It works: the meal is a sensual feast, Laura is utterly seduced and Tomasso falls in lust. But it is Bruno, the real chef who has secretly prepared every dish Laura has eaten, who falls deeply and unrequitedly in love.

A delicious tale of Cyrano de Bergerac-style culinary seduction, but with sensual recipes instead of love poems.

Industry Reviews

THE FOOD OF LOVE is a splendid, linen suit, panama hat, distant lawnmower kind of a book; guaranteed to whisk you far from this drizzly island, soothe you, warm you and return you home again without losing any of your luggage - Hugh Laurie

I read it while travelling in Italy and really enjoyed the whole concept of chefs, love, Italy, food and sex - Rose Gray, owner of The River Cafe

Gastronomic delights - WOMAN'S OWN

A romantic and sensual novel that's full of wonderful recipes - WOMAN AND HOME

mouthwatering good read.


Well written. I could practically taste all the meals made in the story.
