I just don't care this much about food.
I always love Stacey Ballis' books, she writes great characters and compelling stories but the "foodie lit" just doesn't do it for me. Her last few books, while great stories, get bogged down in all the endless chatter about ingredients and recipes. I really enjoyed the parts of the book I read, but found myself skipping over paragraph after paragraph of "food porn." If you're a lover of food and cooking you'll probably enjoy this book more than I did.
