In the quaint seaside town of Newbay, a beginner’s cookery course is starting. And three very different students have signed up…
Liz‘s husband has left her for a twenty-something clean-eating blogger, and she’s determined to show the world – and her daughter – she’s just as capable in the kitchen. John, newly widowed after fifty years of marriage, can’t live on sympathy lasagnes forever. To thirty-year-old workaholic Bella, the course is a welcome escape from her high-pressure job. Their only common ground: between them, they can barely boil an egg!
Enter talented chef Alex, who is determined to introduce his pupils to the comforts of cuisine. As Liz, John and Bella encounter various disasters in the kitchen, the unlikely trio soon form a fast friendship. Their culinary skills might be catastrophic – but could the cookery club have given them a recipe for happiness?
I always find that Chrissie’s books are feel good and can always raise quite a few laughs. This book was brilliant, it had everything I wanted, a good storyline, great characters and lots of laughs. Some of the things Liz gets up to are really funny. I liked the fact we hear all three of the cooking courses students stories, some of them are sad but how the cookery course helps them is just magical. I would definitely recommend this read.
