I loved the passionate description of food and the relationship between the protagonist and her mentor, the elderly Jewish cook, but towards the last third of the book the story takes a mythical turn and becomes quite fantastical. I wasn’t sure if this represented the character’s state of mind or was suppose to be taken as reality. – perhaps it doesn’t really matter. The change in direction didn’t bother me but I have to say the first part of the booking dealing with the cook passing along her skills interested me more.
