When love-starved lesbians
decide to make up for lost time, the recipe is romance. And with
Karin Kallmaker cooking, you know the result will be hot, spicy
and mouth-wateringly delicious!
Master Chef Jamie Onassis has used every penny
she has to buy a beautiful country inn she plans to turn into a
five-star restaurant. Unfortunately, the inn turns out to be a "handyman's
special" and, without the skills or capital to make the necessary
repairs, Jamie risks losing everything.
Home and garden expert Valkyrie Valentine is a
rising star among the do-it-yourself set. A seemingly perfect homemaker,
Valkyrie seems destined to become the next Martha Stewart - as long
as no one discovers her embarrassing little secret: she can't cook.
Jamie desperately agrees to Val's wild proposition:
she'll fix the inn if Jamie will help her fake being a dream chef
for a holiday weekend hosting magazine executives. It's just one
short weekend and not all that big a lie. What could go wrong?
Delicious recipes and
chocolate-as-sublimation await the reader in Karin Kallmaker's uproarious
farce of cooking that doesn't stay in the kitchen.
Fans of this book will not want to miss the short stories (and recipes!) in Frosting on the Cake 1 and 2.
