Inhaltsangabe: In the sumptuous tradition of Chocolat and Captain Corelli's Mandolin, and already optioned for a major motion picture, comes a magical tale of romantic passion, culinary delight?and Italy.
Captain James Gould arrives in wartime Naples assigned to discourage marriages between British soldiers and their gorgeous Italian girlfriends. But the innocent young officer is soon distracted by an intoxicating young widow who knows her way around a kitchen...Livia Pertini is creating feasts that stun the senses with their succulence?ruby-colored San Marzana tomatoes, glistening anchovies, and delectable new potatoes encrusted with the black volcanic earth of of Campania?and James is about to learn that his heart may rank higher than his orders. For romance can be born of the sweet and spicy passions of food and love?and time spent in the kitchen can be as joyful and exciting as the banquet of life itself!
Full of the same colour and verve as Capella's The Food of Love, this story also blends romance with gourmet delights ( GOOD Housekeeping)
The Wedding Officer resembles a cross between Captain Corelli's Mandolin and Chocolat, while remaining a charming and powerful fiction in its own right ( Michael Arditti)
This is an engaging tale. It brims with fascinating historical detail, an infectious enthusiasm for southern Italy and its cuisine and is an undemanding and sympathetic love story ( Sunday TIMES)
Spicy, funny, delicious and sexy, this is the perfect holiday book ( EVENING HERALD)
