Laura Patterson is an American exchange student in Rome who, fed up with being inexpertly groped by her young Italian beaus, decides there's only one sure-fire way to find a sensual man: date a chef. Then she meets Tomasso, who's handsome, young, and cooks in the exclusive Templi restaurant. Perfect. Except, unbeknownst to Laura, Tomasso is in fact only a waiter at Templi; it's his shy friend Bruno who is the chef. But Tomasso is the one who knows how to get the girls, and when Laura comes to dinner he persuades Bruno to help him with the charade. It works: the meal is a sensual feast, Laura is utterly seduced, and Tomasso falls in...lust. But it is Bruno, the real chef, who has secretly prepared every dish Laura has eaten, and who falls deeply and unrequitedly in love. Download and start listening now!

    " And I am glad I started "The Food of Love" after last night's great dinner at La Tavola, or I'd be craving good Italian food right now intensely. As it is, this book makes me hungry for the kind of food I am just not going to get here in Korea. And reminds me so much of my fantastic trip to Italy and how absolutely amazing the food was there. I can't wait to go back one day. And eat a lot. A lot. "

    " This book made me hungry....for some Italian food, for a trip to Italy, but moreso hungry for a plot that wasn't predicable and better character development. Strange premise overall with twists that were farfetched. I did like the descriptions of Italy and the food and that carried me through this light read for book club. "

    " A really fun fluff read! Yay! "

    " First,it's a juicy love story. Second, it's an interesting off-beat tour of Italy. Third, and most important to me, it reveals once and for all that haute cuisine is not an exclusive property of the French Very Italian, very gourmet, very funny, very sexy. Witty, satirical in places, sad in other places, but ultimately satisfying, Capella has captured personalities with style and precision. It is a joy for any reader who loves food to read about the dishes that Bruno creates. This was a yummy book because of the delicacies and because of the love story. "

    " I liked the Wedding Officer a lot. This was no where near as good as the Wedding Officer. It had potential, and then it got all weird. The characters were pretty shallow, his female protagonist made me roll my eyes a lot, and the sex scenes were actually kind of gross (pretending the woman is a pig on a spit roasting in olive oil and rosemary?) Plus, the author lost track of characters and plots that he introduced and resolved them in an unsatisfactorily way. I did like Bruno a lot, but even he became kind of whiny. It was a good vacation read, but I was disappointed. "

    " Sexy soft read - will make you feel hungry and horny with the descriptions of Italian men who seduce through their cooking!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nikolina | 1/14/2014

    " I liked the book! And I was really hungry while I was reading it:) Love story is nothing special, but the way he writes about italian food-amazing... "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Catherine | 1/11/2014

    " I finished this book only because my friend, who I normally have the same taste as, gave it 5. I REALLY didn't like it. I thought it was too descriptive of the food and not descriptive enough of the characters. I didn't believe that Bruno really loved her. In the end I didn't really even care if they got together or not... not a great choice for me. "

    " Fun book with classic story of girl falls in love with a man who is an imposter, his friend is who she really falls for, unbeknownest to her. Great descriptions of classic Roman peasant food. Bought it to get in the mood for Rome. Light read. "

    " Fun, fun, fun! It was Peter Mayle-meets-Italy. Great romantic comedy/farse featuring mouthwatering descriptions of Italian food. Not the most believable romance, but, hey, it was written by a guy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathryn | 9/18/2011

    " Aaaaaargh,..
    Peringatan keras bagi yang akan membaca buku ini: jangan pernah, sekali lagi jangan pernah baca buku ini dalam keadaan perut kosong atau perut setengah keisi.
    Berbahaya!
    Sebuah prosa yang sensual tentang Italia, kekasih dan kuliner. "

    " A good beach read. The plot is pretty predictable and the characters are mostly 2-dimensional, but if you're looking for an easy and entertaining read that will make you hungry (the food descriptions are awesome!) this is your book! "
