'My point is this: who needs enemies when you have a family?' Claire Delaney, a fiery fifteen-year-old, and her mother, Jackie, are both out of control. They've had a lot to deal with after the tragic death of Claire's father and they're driving each other crazy. When Jackie, a forty-something comedian, announces she's going to marry a younger man she's only just met, Claire is outraged. In retaliation she apprentices herself to a volatile Italian chef, who teaches her the secrets of his kitchen. In time, both Jackie and Claire discover that life like the best recipes is at once mysterious and mysteriously simple. 'A convincing and engaging portrait of a family, with a cast of well-drawn minor characters, Some highly evocative South Australian settings and a wonderful account of like in a restaurant kitchen.' SYDNEY MORNING HEARLD ' . . . delivers the untidiness of family life with humour and pathos.' THE AGE
