Publisher Description

In a world of hate, let's serve up some love . . .

Peta Mathias has encountered many a lovelorn tale on her gastronomic travels around the world. Searching further, she has unearthed more stories - the heart-warming and heart-rending, the passionate and poignant, the macabre and merry - and in these retellings brings them all to life.

With her characteristic wit and colour, she also dishes up many of the ingredients of love-

  • intriguing courtship rituals, such as bundling and the apple slice dance;
  • poetry penned by those with their own stories to tell;
  • and, of course, romantic recipes, purported aphrodisiacs and alluring delicacies.

Entertaining, hilarious and informative, this book is a smorgasbord of love.
