Inhaltsangabe

Since childhood, Rosa Fiore - daughter of a sultry Sicilian matriarch and her hapless husband - found solace in her family's kitchen. La Cucina, the heart of the family's lush estate, was a place where generations of Fiore women prepared sumptuous feasts and where the drama of extended family life was played out around the age-old table.

When Rosa was a teenager, her own cooking became the stuff of legend in this small community that takes pride in the bounty of its landscape and the eccentricity of its inhabitants. Rosa's infatuation with culinary arts was rivaled only by her passion for a young man, Bartolomeo, who, unfortunately, belonged to another. After their love affair ended in tragedy, Rosa retreated first into her kitchen and then into solitude, as a librarian in Palermo. There she stayed for decades, growing corpulent on her succulent dishes, resigned to a loveless life.

Then, one day, she meets the mysterious chef, known only is I'Inglese, whose research on the heritage of Sicilian cuisine leads him to Rosa's library, and into her heart. They share one sublime summer of discovery, during which I'lnglese awakens the power of Rosa's sensuality, and together they reach new heights of culinary passion. When I'Inglese suddenly vanishes, Rosa returns home to the farm to grieve for the loss of her second love. In the comfort of familiar surroundings, among her growing family, she discovers the truth about her loved ones and finds her life transformed once more by the magic of her cherished Cucina.

Kritikerstimmen

Succulent saga...with a sensuous tone, a folkloric narrative style and most original set of characters, La Cucina could well satisfy the hungriest of appetites. - ( People Magazine)
Prior cooks up a cinematic yarn full of characters so rich you'll fear they're fattening, but readers will be sure to splurge on this saucy tale chock full of sex, recipes, and murder. - ( Publishers Weekly)

A surreal and fun book

I immediately enjoyed this really weird story. What a family! Everything fits: both story and the reader are unusual and keep the reader hooked. I will definitely also read other books of this author.

La Cucina von Lily Prior

Dieses Hörbuch ist ein Ohrenschmaus! Lisa Passero verleiht jeder Figur ihre eigene charakteristische Stimme, was das Zuordnen der Personen sehr erleichtert. Ihr Akzent versetzt den Hörer in die italienische Sprachlandschaft. Wenn Frau Passero die Passagen vorliest, nein, vorträgt, in denen vom Kochen und Essen die Rede ist, fällt es mir schwer, nicht sofort in die Küche zu stürmen und meine Cucina italiana-Kochbücher von vorn bis hinten durchzukochen!
So wird Sehen mit den Ohren leicht gemacht. Sehr empfehlenswert!
