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 new 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. 42 b/w illustrations.

Review:

"Recipes, restaurant critiques, and food lore — all agreeably season...Hesser's beguiling story of her two loves: food and the initially unpromising Mr. Latte....A yummy treat even for fans of Sanka and Michelob." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"[T]he text here comes across as shallow and lacking in wisdom....The pervasive feeling of superficiality and calculation is compounded by the cutesy cartoons of Hesser as a sleek, big-eyed little doll. Self-promotion has its uses, but perhaps it should also have its limits — though this book will decidedly get some play among the socially, and culinarily, ambitious." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"[C]harming and smart....Cooking for Mr. Latte addresses a tantalizing question: does eternal love require similar tastes?...Trading blow for blow in a game of culinary teasing, [Hesser and Mr. Latte] are the Hepburn and Grant of kitchen comedy." Rand Richards Cooper, The New York Times Book Review

It was interesting to read of a courtship that embodies the way to a man's heart is through his stomach from the female perspective when, as a male, I always thought it was a secret. It inspired me to the point that I successfully shared my culinary skills and ended up with a wife!
