Staff-recommended reading from the
Deep Dish / Mary Kay Andrews is the first (hopefully) of a new series featuring a feisty Southern thirty something foodie named Gina Foxton who has a very successful local cooking show until she finds it cancelled and replaced by a manly outdoors cooking show featuring the not so hard to look at Tate Moody.
The main feature of this light novel is a Gina/Tate cook-off at an out-of-the-way lodge on a Georgia Sea Island, Eutow. When the cook-off turns into a real food fight, it is easy to see where this duel is going, but the read is fun and light and good for a few hours waiting for the Thanksgiving turkey to cook. One hopes to see more of Gina and Tate in the near future.
