They say there is no such thing as chance, only encounters.

Liz, a talented and accomplished chef discovers this when she travels to the Basque country, following in her mother’s footsteps. In a small village off the beaten track, she meets Mr. Etchegoyen, an elusive and flamboyant dandy who offers her the keys to his restaurant. In exchange, she must transform the dull tavern into a gastronomic destination.

But Peyo, the chef, is suspicious of Liz. Each will have to win the other over, and confront the ghosts of their past.

In this deliciously enchanting novel, Anne-Gaëlle Huon takes us on an emotional rollercoaster ride. The result is a universally moving novel that teaches us about hope and love, and gives us back our taste for life.
