The Dish by Stella Newman

The Dish by Stella Newman is the new novel from the much-loved author of Pear Shaped and Leftovers. This is a warm, passionate novel that will delight fans of Jill Mansell and Mhairi McFarlane and leave you happy and hungry in equal measure. Love is on the menu. With a side order of lies. When Laura Parker first crosses forks with Adam Bayley, she's only after one thing: his custard doughnut. But when she takes a closer look she sees a talented, handsome man who outshines the string of jokers she's been dating. There's just one problem. Adam's job means Laura has to keep her job as restaurant critic for The Dish, a secret. Tricky for someone who prides herself on honesty. Can the truth be put on ice long enough for love to flourish? And how can you expect your boyfriend to be honest if you're not quite telling the truth yourself? Stella Newman. Fiction has never tasted so good.
