AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Claire Delaney, a fiery fifteen-year-old, and her mother, Jackie, are both out of control. They've had a lot to deal with after the tragic death of Claire's father - and they're driving each other crazy.

'When Jackie, a forty-something comedian, announces she's going to marry a younger man she's only just met, Claire is outraged. In retaliation she apprentices herself to a volatile Italian chef, who teacher her the secrets of his kitchen. In time, both Jackie and Claire discover that life - like the best recipes - is at once mysterious and mysteriously simple.' (Publisher's blurb)
