Laura Patterson is an American exchange student in Rome who, fed up with being inexpertly groped by her young Italian beaus, decides there's only one sure-fire way to find a sensual man: date a chef. Then she meets Tomasso, who's handsome, young -- and cooks in the exclusive Templi restaurant. Perfect. Except, unbeknownst to Laura, Tomasso is in fact only a waiter at Templi -- it's his shy friend Bruno who is the chef.
But Tomasso is the one who knows how to get the girls, and when Laura comes to dinner he persuades Bruno to help him with the charade. It works: the meal is a sensual feast, Laura is utterly seduced and Tomasso falls in lust. But it is Bruno, the real chef who has secretly prepared every dish Laura has eaten, who falls deeply and unrequitedly in love.
A delicious tale of Cyrano de Bergerac-style culinary seduction, but with sensual recipes instead of love poems.

I loved this book and all of his others. Fluffy love story with a twist. Makes you want to go to Italy and eat lots of pasta!
“Enjoy your meal”
"The Food of Love" is a light story about crossed romances in Italy, weaved around the theme of food. It was an agreeable read and even genuinely humorous at times.

“The Food of Love”
Absurdly predictable. Descriptions of Italy, Italians and the food interesting for a while but became overpowering and bordered on the ludicrous.
