6 deliciously flawed main characters
1 pretty coastal town in Maine
1 darling cottage/cooking school
1 handful of pain and disappointment
2 heaping handfuls of friendship, love, and wishes
3 ingredients that brought me to the The Love Goddess' Cooking School:
1. My love for the kitchen, especially the faucet, on the cover.
2. My affection for stories with elements of cooking magic.
3. My admiration for the sweet complexities I enjoyed in The Secret of Joy.
Whine: The last 1/4 is a bit predictable but there is nothing wrong with that. By that point you're invested and itching to read the last pages of nonna's diary.
Whimsical: Some of the charming Italian recipes that call for memories and wishes are featured in the back of the book.
Whippersnappers: Mild mentions to infidelity, sex, death.
Wisdom: "What I've learned, Mia, and what my grandmother always said, is that the whole point is wishing and remembering - not if what you want happens, not if remembering hurts. Because when you wish for something, you're asking. And when you ask, you're trying. And all everyone can really do is try, right?"
