Girl Cook: A Novel
Called “a deliciously modern Cinderella story of love, sex, chefs and the city,” this first novel is all about Cordon Bleu graduate Layla Mitchner and her trials and tribulations both in Manhattan’s dating world and in its restaurant kitchens. Layla, a character developed with humor and more than a dash of sass, may not be to everybody’s taste, but she certainly makes a lasting impression on the reader. The author, who resides in Brooklyn, is herself a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu as well as Columbia University’s writing program. She has cooked in numerous restaurant kitchens and her writing has appeared in numerous places as well.
