Küchenduell mit Herz und Humor

Augusta „Gus“ Simpson, Fernsehstar aus „Kochen mit Gusto!“ und zweifache Mutter, ist eine Frau mit Vorbildfunktion – elegant, makellos gekleidet und vor allem eine Entertainerin der Extra-Klasse. Ob Gartengrillfest oder Teekränzchen, Gus hat immer den passenden Plan und das passende Rezept, um alle ihre Gäste glücklich zu machen. Als sie jedoch ihren eigenen 50. Geburtstag organisieren muss, wird ihr bewusst, dass sie die Nase voll davon hat, die perfekte Gastgeberin und Glucke zu spielen. Um alles noch schlimmer zu machen, beschließen die Programmchefs des Koch-Senders, die Quoten zu steigern und ihr die schöne, aber hinterhältige Carmen Vega an die Seite zu stellen – eine frühere Miss Spanien, die sich einen Namen als neuer heißer Feger der Feinschmeckerwelt gemacht hat. Doch anstatt das Küchenhandtuch zu schmeißen, geht Gus das erste M al in ihrem L eben auf Risiko und kocht in ihrer neuen Live-Show, als ginge es um ihr Leben – mit Würze, Temperament, einem neuen Team und jeder Menge (Küchen-)Tricks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Read Gus Simpson is the main character - a cooking guru with her own cooking show. On the eve of turning 50, sh is is not only dealing with her authentic self and its re-evaluation; she is also dealing with the challenge of lower ratings and her producers' idea to spice it up with the young Miss Spain. Gus is also re-working her relationship with her two daughters which she has felt responsible to protect and make sure they are "happy" since the tragic death of their father. The story becomes sentimental as it progresses. A lovely tale.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A book to read over and over I loved this book. I read a ton of books and I generally don't read a lot of books more than once. This book however, has earned itself a spot on the bookshelf where I keep the "special ones". I think what makes it so great it that it's not just about the main character, Gus. There is a lot going on for each of the other characters but their stories are all intertwined. I would definitely recommend this book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it Didn't think she could make anything as wonderful as The Friday Night Knitting Club, but Comfort Food is just as beautiful. A great read.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall a Good Read Although not quite as good as her Friday Night Knitting Club series, I still found this book beach-worthy and hard to put down. Not impossible to put down, but difficult. Characters were well thought out and storyline had potential but the ending seemed rushed a little.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Predictably chick lit I don't really have anything against this book. I even gave it three stars because I didn't hate it. However I found that, like "Friday Night Knitting Club" it was fairly predictable. Not in the way where I knew exactly what was going to happen, but I would get to a plot point in the story and just... not be surprised by it. Comfort Food is the story of a middle aged celebrity on the cooking channel (this story's "Food Network") who is being told she's not 'hip' enough and not getting ratings so the producers shake up her show and pair her with an up and coming beauty queen turned foodie. There is strife between the two women. There is family issues between the main character and her daughters. There is lots of people being asked to do things they don't want to do because the producers see it as a great idea. If you are a fan of this sort of genre. Very 'womyn powah!', where the men sort of fall into background artwork... then this is totally the book for you. I won't read it again, but it was alright.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Comfort food indeed... There is tremendous comfort to be had in reading the aptly titled Comfort Food by Kate Jacobs. Although there are few surprises in this story of Gus, a 50 year old TV cooking show hostess who has found herself in a bit of a rut, this is precisely what makes it work. I have tremendous respect for books that embrace what they are and do it well, without attempting to aspire to what they may perceive as “greater heights”. This book is the written version of a romantic comedy which in my mind accomplishes the same task; the sole purpose of each is to entertain and provide an escape from reality. Initially I found Jacobs’ writing style a distraction, but one that I was quickly able to overcome (the only exception being the use of the expression “thank you very much”). Her writing worked with the story which sweeps the reader along with just enough plot and perspective to maintain interest, but not so much that it is impossible to put down. Comfort Food provides a welcome respite for those whose lives or reading material has become too full of complexity and mire.
