Synopsis

The Food of Love Cookery School by Nicky Pellegrino

Luca Amore runs cooking holidays in the baroque Sicilian mountain town of Fasolino. He's taught many people how to cook the dishes passed down to him by generations of Amore women. As he readies himself for yet another course he expects it to be much like all the others. He will cook, he will take his clients to visit vineyards and olive groves, they will eat together, become friends, and then after a fortnight they will pack up and head home to whatever corner of the globe they came from. But there is a surprise in store for Luca. This time there are four women booked in to the That's Amore cooking school. All are at turning points in their lives. All want something more than new recipes and cooking skills from their time in Sicily. Valerie has lost her partner of 20 years and is wondering if she'll ever be loved again. Poppy has split amicably from her husband and decided to create a life of independence and adventures. Moll is passionate about food and is hiding a secret. And Tricia is trapped in a job she hates and will do anything to escape it. Luca doesn't realise it yet but he is going to fall in love with one of these women. But which will it be? And what are the chances she will love him back?

About the Author

Nicky Pellegrino

When Nicky Pellegrino's Italian father came to England he fell in love with and married a Liverpool girl. He brought to his new family his passion for food and instilled in them what all Italians know - that you live to eat instead of eating to live. This Italian mantra is the inspiration behind Nicky's delicious novels. Every summer the family left their home in Merseyside and returned to her father's home town, near Naples, in southern Italy. When Nicky met and married a New Zealander she moved to Auckland where she works as a journalist and edits a woman's magazine. She hoards her annual leave so that she and her husband can return to Italy to meet up with her family and to eat the best mozzarella and research her books.
