From the New York Times bestselling author of The Friday Night Knitting Club comes a delectable new novel about food, family, and second chances.
Augusta Simpson has come a long way since her husband's sudden death left her to raise two daughters on her own. She carved a successful career out of her natural talents as a chef and hostess, becoming a famous TV cooking personality. But now, as she approaches fifty, she finds that her well-earned turf may not be as secure as she thought. A hot, young Latin beauty queen with a flair for spices and an ambition for stardom is threatening to steal her spot on the Cooking Channel. As she struggles to remake herself for a new age of media, she discovers that her entire life needs a makeover, including her relationship with her daughters and perhaps another chance at romance.
Comfort Food is about the power of food to bring people together and the joys of savoring every bite of life.
