The story of Cyrano de Bergerac’s love for Roxane has been retold and retooled umpteen times on stage, in film, and in writing, yet The Food of Love, by Anthony Capella, still manages to bring a unique spin to the well-known tale. In this case, Roxane is Laura, an American 20-something visiting Italy for the first time, and Cyrano is Bruno, a master chef who loves her from afar. He allows his friend Tommaso to take the credit (and kisses) for the sumptuous meals that Laura devours. This is a delicious, delightful book – you’ll love it!
