First published in Great Britain in 2004 by Time Warner Books. Time Warner, London 2004. Hardback, 313 pages.

The blurb:

Laughter. Romance. Seduction.When in Rome, do as the Romans do ...

Laura Patterson,

a twenty-four-year old student is spending a year studying art history in Rome. She’s decided that from now on she’ll only go out with a man who can cook.

Tommaso Massi,
handsome and silver-tongued, tells Laura he’s a chef at one of Rome’s best restaurants. In reality he’s just a humble waiter.

His best friend, Bruno,
who really is a chef — a brilliant one — is called upon to help. But when he also falls for Laura, the sparks begin to fly ...

I found this copy last year at some used books store and bought it because of the Finnish Forum Lukemisen aakkoset (alphabetical challenge) 2007 hosted by bookwormess. I (thought I) needed a book, the title of which starts with F. Never read it, though; I realised I already had another F title waiting to be read. Food of Love has been staring me accusingly ever since. It wants to be read and to become a BookCrossing book. It’s rather sad, really, I’m afraid no one has ever read this copy. :(

Last night I saw this very title on someone’s WishList... ENJOY!

Oh, I so want to travel to Italy again! Especially to Le Marche area to that kind of a small osteria which Bruno found during his escape. Fireworks on the Italian cuisine is definitely the thing this book all about. Sharp, colourful, precise ans passionate descriptions of food ingredients, the cooking process and the meals are a treat for a food lover. This book is so dangerous making the reader constantly hungry for anything delicious there could be found at home :).

Additionally, this made a nice *C* for the Finnish forum's alphabet challenge.

a true RABCK!!! I just checked my mail and inside the box was this book from my wish list. Sent to me by a BCer that I have never met or even "seen" around on this site.
I look forward to reading this and I thank you for your sincere kindness.

Thanks so much for the RABCK
