Nicole Mones knocked another one out of the park for me with The Last Chinese Chef! The story begins when Maggie McElroy must travel to China to attend to a paternity suit against her late husband’s estate. Maggie, a food writer, agrees to interview a Chinese-American chef while she is there for an article on traditional Chinese cuisine. The author takes us on a fascinating trip through modern and ancient Chinese culture, epicurean delights, and history, and wraps it all up in a romance that will leave you sighing and wanting more. It was a great way to start off my summer reading!
