To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I blew through this book in just a few days and I wish it was a series so I could read more! If you're like me, a book that transports you to beautiful places with beautiful food will be just the post-winter, tail-end-of-quarantine (hopefully) escape that you need. This is a really fun read but it also tells an accurate tale of the misogyny that runs rampant in the culinary world and how much harder women have to work to be successful. It would make a great rom com screenplay and I look forward to reading Vérants other books.
This is the 2nd Samantha Vérant book I’ve read. Absolutely loved her ‘How to make a French Family’. This is fun and light reading. A homage to ones past and lessons learned from family. Fun group of characters. Sophie does get on your nerves a bit but she makes up for it eventually. 😊
I disliked that the author chose to drive the story through a false agenda of a chosen gay lifestyle. A friendship or a career as a chef has absolutely NOTHING to do with an alternate lifestyle. The author disrespects her audience assuming that everyone sees life through gay choices. WILL NEVER EVEN BROWSE THIS AUTHOR EVER. Give a warning to those of us who are not part of your false claims! ZERO STAR.
