Portia Cuthcart never intended to leave Texas. Her dream was to run the Glass Kitchen restaurant her grandmother built decades ago. But after a string of betrayals and the loss of her legacy, Portia is determined to start a new life in Manhattan. When she moves into a dilapidated brownstone on the Upper West Side, she meets twelve-year-old Ariel and her widowed father, a man trying to raise two daughters on his own. Soon, a promise made to her sisters forces Portia back into a world of magical food and swirling emotions, where she must confront everything she has been running from. What seems so simple on the surface is anything but when long-held secrets are revealed, rivalries exposed, and the promise of new love stirs to life like chocolate mixing with cream.

I had a little trouble getting into this novel, but once I did, I must say that it was an enjoyable read. For those out there who love foodie reads with recipes, this one is for you.

Really enjoyed this book. Portia has an uncanny knowledge of food that her sisters Cordelia and Olivia call 'the knowing.' When Portia feels she has to cook, entire meal plans come to her and they either calm, heal or bring people together. After the death of her beloved Grandmother, Portia heads off to the townhouse apartment in New York that was left to her by an aunt. What she's not expecting is Gabriel and his daughters, Ariel and Miranda who also inhabit the same building. It's a romance with many ups and downs and a satisfying ending.

A bit reminiscent of "Chocolat", this novel is about inherited special qualities (the "knowing"), food, family, love, finding oneself, and taking risks. I really enjoyed reading this book; it was yummy -- I had to devour it. I'm definitely going to look for other books by Linda Francis Lee.

A charming read, with a menu of a variety of characters. Not quite a feast, but a nice snack. Sugar for romance, cinnamon for flavor, jalapenos for spicy and stirred in with equal parts of
sadness, disillusionment, regret, along with hope.
