A taste of love
Last up is a breezy tale of two chefs battling it out in a Brooklyn neighborhood. Just a Taste by Deirdre Martin stirs together two unlikely loversItalian-American Anthony Dante, whose Bensonhurst restaurant is a neighborhood icon, and French import Vivi Robitaille, who has come to America to open a restaurant where she can be taken seriously as a woman chef. Although food is meant to be the centerpiece of the novel, it is the refreshing setting of Brooklyn, and the surprise of an immigrant Frenchwoman as heroine, that make this such an agreeable read.
