This “sparkling retelling of My Fair Lady set in an alternate 1830s London” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review)—from Jennieke Cohen, author of Dangerous Alliance—is perfect for fans of My Lady Jane and A Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue.
In 1830s England, Culinarians are the crème de la crème of high society.Helena Higgins and Penelope Pickering are students at the Royal Academy. Elijah Little is a street vendor with a truly ingenious palate.Each of them has something to prove: Helena is determined to cement herself as the greatest Culinarian of her time; Penelope is out to show all those who scorn her Filipina heritage and non-European dishes just how wrong they are; Elijah knows that with training, he can break into high society—even if London merchants don’t want a Jewish boy owning a shop.Fate brings these three together to pull off a project never seen before: turning Elijah into a true gentleman chef. A project where mayhem, unseemly faux pas, and even a little romance will all become a part of the delicious recipe.Culinary delights abound, romance lingers in the air, and plans go terribly, wonderfully astray in this cheeky and charming Victorian tale, perfect for fans of Bridgerton or Dickinson.
