La Cucina by Lily Prior

About the book

La Cucina tells the story of Rosa Fiore, a solitary middle-aged librarian, who has resigned herself to a loveless life, and expresses her passionate nature through her delicious cooking.

Reviewed by Eastleigh Library Wednesday Afternoon Group

We were of mixed opinion over this, a good laugh, atmosphere, enjoyed the descriptions of the cooking. One member of the group compared it to Joanne Harris’ “Chocolat” but did not think it as good. Characters not very attractive and found the ending indecisive.
