This is such a good resource I thought I'd try....

I recently (within the last six weeks) read a couple of reviews of a new book, described as magical realism. It involved a woman who, when she ate food, could tell the mood that the food preparer was in when it was made.

Sound familiar? Anyone know the title?

If you enjoy magical realism, and would like another book to read try,  Like Water For Chocolate.

THANK YOU so much for finding that title! That's the one I was ISO.

Oh yes, I've read Water for Chocolate; it was great.
