Wenn Kochen die Liebensgeister weckt

Man nehme … einen Schuss Liebe, einen Spritzer Lebenswürze und neun Menschen, die durch das Kochen verzaubert werden!

„Am liebsten mochte Lillian den Augenblick, bevor sie das Licht einschaltete. Sie stand im Türrahmen der Restaurantküche und ließ sich von den Düften umhüllen – hefiger Sauerteig und süßlich-erdiger Kaffee, reife Tomaten, Cantaloupe-Melonen und frisch gewaschene Salatblätter.“

Lillian ist Besitzerin eines Nobelrestaurants. Sie stammt aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen, aber dank ihrer Kochkünste hat sie es bis ganz nach oben geschafft. Besonders am Herzen liegt ihr die Weitergabe ihres kulinarischen Wissens. Jeden zweiten Montag im Monat treffen sich die Teilnehmer ihres Kochkurses: Da ist etwa Claire, die ganz in ihrer Rolle als Hausfrau und Mutter aufgeht und endlich wieder etwas für sich selbst tun möchte; Tom, der über den Tod seiner geliebten Frau Charlie hinwegzukommen versucht; oder die hübsche Antonia, die aus Italien eingewandert ist und sich immer noch fremd fühlt. Jeder der acht Koch-Lehrlinge sucht nach dem perfekten Rezept – für ein exquisites Gericht oder, wie bald klar wird, auch für ein glückliches Leben. Während des Kurses wird gekocht, gegrillt und gebacken – und es werden Ehekrisen gemeistert, zarte Bande gesponnen, Tragödien verhindert und Freundschaften geschlossen. Und am Ende findet nicht nur Antonia ihr Glück …

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Delightful This book was a delight, in fact, I read it in 2 days. It is a book about cooking but not about recipes; rather, it is about mindulness. Mindfulness in doing what you do with love and care; whether it be in cooking or in relationships. Where it is necessary to follow rules or steps as in baking a cake, those need to be respected as the end result is not only an edible creation but a creation that is very reflective of the baker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious! This is a lovely book about a group of students who find themselves in a cooking class together. Perfect rainy day read that you can finish ion one sitting before rushing off to the kitchen.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The School of Essential Ingredients A pleasant read, a nice story - especially for those who like food and cooking. I liked the structure of the book and the development of the characters. I thought there was an overuse of similes and metaphors to the point where I began counting them... They interfered with my enjoyment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Terrific read Absolutely a delightful read, but I was hoping for more than my imagination left me with - highly recommended for a feel good read. Thanks for rekindling me with fond kitchen memories, and ones I still cherish and try to uphold for family

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely book - stories about love told through cooking This was a delightful, easy read. The story centres around several characters who are taking cooking lessons by the main character. You learn about their relationships and how they came to be where they are at the current moment. Main themes: love, relationships and how food and the sharing of food/breaking bread, bring people together. Sharing a meal is one of the best ways to connect with and learn about others, and that is what happens here -- as you read, it's as if the reader is cooking alongside the characters. I also learned some good, practical cooking tips and recipes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Loved It!! Lillian teaches cooking classes once a month on Monday nights. She has a rather eclectic group of 8 students. Not all of the students have come to learn how to cook; some have a gift certificate to use up, some are actually looking for a cook rather than learning to be one, some come with a desire to truly learn from the culinary expert, while others actually dream about becoming chefs and giving up their current jobs. Lillian knew no matter their reason for coming, each one of them, at some point would open their eyes “…with joy or tears or resolution – it always happened.” The timing and reason would be different for each, and that’s where the fascination lay. “No two spices work the same.” Cooking is Lillian’s life and she felt about her “zester” the same way women do about a pair of spiky red shoes! However, I don’t want to tell you “how” Lillian learned to cook because that is an important part of the story and one you will be able to relate too if you’re any kind of foodie! I loved this story! It was like a savoury meal shared with friends. The aroma and flavours of the food matched the conversation and the moods of those participating in the experience. The pungent aroma of spices almost had a hypnotic effect on the chef’s preparing the food as they reminisced about times past, current, and future and culminated into a joyous meal we could all enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent book! Excellent first novel - please keep them coming. I loved following the character development and reading about the ingredients, the blending of different foods to create wonderful dishes and the memories that are evoked when we eat certain foods.
