Publisher Comments:

Life in the city, love, and unforgettable meals — can a food writer find happiness with a man who has an empty refrigerator? Amanda Hesser's irresistible book is the tale of a romance where food is the source of discovery, discord, and delight — a story of universal desires: good food, great company, and a mate.

At each stage of her courtship — from her first date with "Mr. Latte" (a near-disaster) to her first uneasy dinner at his parents' home, from intimate suppers in her Upper West Side apartment to his first attempt at cooking for her — Amanda supplies menus for the meals they share: more than one hundred well-balanced and well-seasoned recipes that will leave you satisfied yet wanting more.

With warmth and honesty, Amanda shares her feasts and foibles, triumphs and near-misses, tense encounters and good times in the kitchen and beyond. Her humorous, sensuous tale leads us date by date, recipe by recipe, to a jubilant conclusion.

I just stumbled on this book by accident. Am I ever glad I did. It's a funny, smart, endearing read for any food lover. I was enchanted by her musings on food, NYC and relationships. Then there was the extra benefit of her recipes. In fact, she inspired me so much, I have already cooked up a few of her favorites. This would be a perfect gift for any food lover on your gift list.
