Food + Dog + Love = Book

The Lost Recipe for Happiness by Barbara O'Neal is about a sous-chef who finally gets the chance to run her own kitchen, in a new Aspen restaurant that the owner names after her dog. The dog and the romance reminded me of another enjoyable light read, Turning Tables by Heather and Rose MacDowell, in which a laid-off marketing manager faces a sink-or-swim situation as a waitress at a top New York restaurant. Though I haven't read it, I think Comfort Food by Kate Jacobs has promising similiarities (a 50-year-old TV chef who falls for her producer.) And of course, there's always the all-you-can-eat buffet of culinary mystery novels.
