This book has its ups and downs. It's the story of a woman who realizes her dream of attending the Cordon Bleu cooking school in France.
I couldn't get past the fact that although so many chefs aspire to go to this expensive school in order to launch their careers, the author attends simply to indulge a hobby, but maybe that is just me.
The parts that interested me the most are when she introduces us the somewhat eccentric chefs and students in her classes who are at times appalled by her lack of skill, and at other times by her development of talent.
Interwoven in this tale is the one of her living in Paris with her boyfriend and eventually getting married. It's not very relevant to the rest of the story and ultimately slows it down.
This book has some funny moments, but I wouldn't pick it up again.
