Join the discussion on the last Sunday of February. With the bookshop’s storefront being closed – we’ll be meeting via Zoom (https://us02web.zoom.us/j/87440242613?pwd=KzZiU2c5UGNlNk9Xc2Z4MkhMcm9SQT09)

This month we’re going to be reading “Recipe For Persuasion” by Sonali Dev. Chef Ashna Raje desperately needs a new strategy. How else can she save her beloved restaurant and prove to her estranged, overachieving mother that she isn’t a complete screw up? When she’s asked to join the cast of Cooking with the Stars, the latest hit reality show teaming chefs with celebrities, it seems like just the leap of faith she needs to put her restaurant back on the map. She’s a chef, what’s the worst that could happen?

Rico Silva, that’s what.

Being paired with a celebrity who was her first love, the man who ghosted her at the worst possible time in her life, only proves what Ashna has always believed: leaps of faith are a recipe for disaster.

FIFA winning soccer star Rico Silva isn’t too happy to be paired up with Ashna either. Losing Ashna years ago almost destroyed him. The only silver lining to this bizarre situation is that he can finally prove to Ashna that he’s definitely over her.

But when their catastrophic first meeting goes viral, social media becomes obsessed with their chemistry. The competition on the show is fierce…and so is the simmering desire between Ashna and Rico. Every minute they spend together rekindles feelings that pull them toward their disastrous past. Will letting go again be another recipe for heartbreak—or a recipe for persuasion…?

In Recipe for Persuasion, Sonali Dev once again takes readers on an unforgettable adventure in this fresh, fun, and enchanting romantic comedy

Our Cooking Together and Cookbook Club events were always a great success and two of my favorites. I was sad to see them end during the pandemic so I’m bringing them back with a big twist. We’re going to Cook Together – Separately. We’ll join together via Zoom and you can cook your favorite dish in the comfort of your own kitchen! Make it a date night or a family adventure, cook by yourself, open a bottle of wine, make your favorite cocktail or mocktail – you can truly make this your own.

For our first event, we’ll be cooking out of  Magnolia Table, v. 1 or 2.

Need a copy of one or both? I’m taking orders now. Message me today!

Join the discussion on the last Sunday of the month. The shop will be open for those that might like to come in person – with social distancing of course! Bring your favorite adult beverage for interesting conversation and fun!

This month we’re going to be reading “The Cookbook Club” by Beth Harbison.  Margo Everson sees the call out for the cookbook club and knows she’s found her people. Recently dumped by her self-absorbed husband, who frankly isn’t much of a loss, she has little to show for her marriage but his ‘parting gift’–a dilapidated old farm house–and a collection of well-loved cookbooks Aja Alexander just hopes her new-found friends won’t notice that that every time she looks at food, she gets queasy. It’s hard hiding a pregnancy, especially one she can’t bring herself to share with her wealthy boyfriend and his snooty mother. Trista Walker left the cutthroat world of the law behind and decided her fate was to open a restaurant…not the most secure choice ever. But there she could indulge her passion for creating delectable meals and make money at the same time. The women bond immediately, but it’s not all popovers with melted brie and blackberry jam. Margo’s farm house is about to fall down around her ears; Trista’s restaurant needs a makeover and rat-removal fast; and as for Aja, just how long can you hide a baby bump anyway? In this delightful novel, these women form bonds that go beyond a love grilled garlic and soy sauce shrimp. Because what is more important in life than friendship…and food?

Copies are available for purchase in the bookshop.
