First in the Chas Wheatley series. She is a renowned restaurant critic in Washington DC. Here, on the eave of City Tastes, chef Laurence Levain suddenly stops....oops! Good start of a series!
I love cooking mysteries even though I'm not a very good cook myself. This book was perfect because it's about eating! Based around a food critic it was perfect for me.
Reading this one, made me hungry all the time. Very good book.
good read, a whodunit in the chef/restaurant critic world...
This was a great book to read. A whodunit in the chef/restaurant critic world.
The blurb says: Chas Wheatley, the Washington Examiner's saber-penned restaurant critic thinks that it was more than just excessive amounts of cholesterol that killed Laurence Levain, her ex-lover and culinary genius, the night before the a star studded black tie benefit dinner where his creation, Les Mouilles en Quilt Muticolore, lush stuffed ravioli, were to shine.
You'll find yourself lusting after the food described in the book, anxious to go out for dinner and held in your seat wanting to finish the book at the same time. This is a great Richman story.
