cross-country to work at a bug restaurant. There's no way I'm gonna
miss what happens next."
Yarrow is a young
chef determined to make her mark on the cutting edge of cookery with
her insect-based creations. Though her enthusiasm is infectious, it
rubs some of her fellow cooks the wrong way, especially Chanda
Flores, Yarrow's personal hero and executive chef of an exciting new
restaurant. Her people have been eating bugs for centuries, and she's
deeply suspicious of this newbie's attempt to turn her traditions
into the next foodie trend. While Chanda and her scrappy team of
talented devotees struggle to open on time, Yarrow must win over
Chanda -- and Milani, the neighbor she's been crushing on for weeks
-- or lose this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to achieve her dreams.
Co-written with chef
and food writer Soleil Ho (Edible Manhattan, Bitch), Blue
Delliquanti's sweet coming-of-age story takes us deep into a world of
art, mystery, and memory on the culinary frontier.
