Publication details London : Bloomsbury, 2012
Notes For years, Elza has managed to get by. A divorcee out of culinary school, she started her own little restaurant in the mid-size Hungarian city of Delibab and has grown a decent business cooking quality versions of Hungarian classics and serving them with a smile. But lately her smile has become tired. The loveless affair with her sous-chef is now an irritation and she is weary of the same customers drooling over the same dishes. With her country in a state of transition, from communism to capitalism, Elza embarks upon her own change, shifting her focus from The Sous-Chef to The Critic, one of the harshest and most powerful restaurant columnists in Europe. Elza invites The Critic to visit her, courageously stepping away from the menu she has lived with since opening the restaurant, in the hope of landing a glowing review that will push her above the competition. But as her relationship with The Sous-Chef turns sour, the food threatens to turn with it. On the fateful night of The Critic's visit, not even Elza's strained composure can prevent the chaos that ensues.
