A novel like a culinary delicacy: passionate, indulgent and sweet
Seven years after the death of his wife Elli, the idyllic restaurant and culinary paradise she and Jacques had opened on the Atlantic coast is bankrupt. When rummaging about in the attic shortly before the compulsory sale Jacques finds an old hand-written cookbook containing "love recipes" Elli had long ago created for him, the master chef. This is when strange things start happening. That very night, Jacques is driven by melancholic memories of the best time in his life. While preparing a meal according to the first recipe, Elli appears to him in the restaurant kitchen. She speaks to him as if she had never left him.
Driven by the conversation with Elli's spirit, Jacques, who in his desperation and loneliness had abandoned his and her dream of Paradise, rediscovers his passion for cooking – and with it, his love of life.
For readers of Nicholas Sparks, Marc Levy and Cecilia Ahern.
