Kali can’t cook to save her life, but she can write. As a foodie reviewer for both a huge national paper and a successful blog, she’s well on her way to achieving her dreams. When she’s offered a cookbook deal, she thinks she’s finally made it…until her latest review comes out a little harsher than expected and the restaurateur threatens to expose all her secrets.
Mac’s whole life is spent in the kitchen, running a New York City restaurant and a culinary school for underprivileged youth. When donations stop pouring in for Mac’s culinary school after a scathing review of his restaurant, he fears he may have to shut the doors if he can’t find a way to turn things around. Then he meets Kali, the reviewer who admits she has no culinary skills. Now he’s made her an offer she can’t refuse—he’ll teach her to cook over the summer and help her with recipes for the cookbook if she’ll agree to write an insider piece highlighting the strengths of his culinary school.
But when things start heating up in Mac’s kitchen, keeping her hands on the food and off of Mac is proving harder than Kali expected.
First reviews are already coming in and here’s what they’re saying:
Reader Girls Blog says: “All in all, Pinch of Me, A Dash of You is certainly a delightful read! I LOVED the ending and the romantic in me was beaming as I finished with a huge smile on my face and a curl in my toes.” http://ow.ly/GRUDP
Hannah’s Words Blog says: “Heather Thurmeier kicked off the the new line with a fabulous book. I thoroughly enjoyed this funny Food Romance. The book is a light and fun paced story of a foodie reviewer who can’t cook and a chef who also runs a cooking school for low income students. Together they make a great story, one I could see turned into a movie.” http://ow.ly/GRWbG
