Prue Leith, ‘The Food of Love’
The first instalment of an epic multi-generational family saga by the fabulous award-winning restauranteur Prue Leith is out now!
A proud family. Snubbed by aristocratic neighbour Lord Frampton at a coming-of-age-ball, Donald Oliver dreams of the day he’ll have his vengeance.
A wild daughter. Laura Oliver, beautiful and tempestuous, falls in love with Giovanni, an Italian ex-prisoner-of-war, now a humble cook. Disdaining her father’s snobbishness - and his wrath - the couple flee to London.
A desperate hope. Giovanni and Laura arrive to a city that has not yet re-awoken after the traumas of war. Facing destitution, only their love for one another and their dream of opening a restaurant business keeps them going.
From Cotswolds farmland to London fish markets, society ballrooms to icy gutters, this is the tale of prejudice and ambition, power and passion, and one couple’s struggle to overcome all obstacles and carve out a life of their own.
