Skinny Bitch in Love Chapter 1 If anyone had told me five, even ten years ago, that one day my life would depend on a plate of nine butternut squash ravioli with garlic and sage sauce, I would have said, “Shit, yeah, it would!” O. Ellery Rice, food critic for the Los Angeles Times, sat at Table Three, the table at Fresh, sipping a glass of organic white wine and tapping her blood-orange nails into her iPhone.

From the coauthor of the phenomenal #1 New York

clever, kick-ass novel about friendship, romance, and making
healthy choices both in and out of the kitchen.
How bad could a little butter be? Bad enough to get rising culinary
star Clementine Cooper blackballed from every vegan kitchen in Los
Angeles after a backstabbing coworker sabotages the biggest night
of her career. Fortunately, any vegan chef worth her salt knows how
to turn lemons into delicious, cruelty-free lemonade cupcakes. Clem
launches the Skinny Bitch Cooking School with dreams of opening her
own neighborhood café. So she's livid when sexy millionaire Zach
Jeffries puts a fork in her plans with his new steakhouse.
When Zach signs up for her cooking class, however, she's
astonished. He's far from the simple meathead Clem imagined him to
be. In fact, he's a very good kisser. Clem thought she was
open-minded, but as she confronts the challenges of budding
entrepreneurship, old rivals, ex-boyfriends, and two tempting
suitors-a charming British vegan chef and a traitorously attractive
carnivore-Clem wonders if she can ever say "I love you" to a man
who hates tofu.
