The first one is an amazing story of how someone can change careers midway in life (after 25 years as a journalist) and to join a restaurant in Avignon, start at the bottom, work with people who are just teenagers and be treated as an imbecile half the time by your superiors.
The process is gruelling, the procedures and food turned out at these restaurants very good, The receipes at the end of each chapter, along with the short cuts used professionally and personally by the author were also of interest.
The treatment meted out to juniors in a kitchen by the Chefs was unimaginably hard though it seemed to be accepted by all!
Another free Amazon download and just what I needed when the going was tough!
A wager for the hand of a lady's hand in marriage is not done in proper circles and the two men who are involved in it are two contrasting characters. The Earl of Davenport knows that he has made a foolish mistake in entering into this. How to win the hand of the lady without her knowing about the wager is the biggest problem he has to face now.
Lighthearted romance. All ending well.
