Description
A troubled teen turns to cooking lessons to win her emotionally distant mother's love in this "moving [and] extraordinary" novel (The Atlantic).

Lorca spends her life poring over cookbooks to earn the love of her distracted, angry mother, a prominent Manhattan chef who left Lorca's father and is now packing her off to boarding school. Desperate to prove herself, Lorca resolves to track down the recipe for her mother's ideal meal.

She signs up for cooking lessons from Victoria, an Iraqi-Jewish immigrant profoundly shaken by her husband's death. Soon these two develop a deeper bond while their concoctions—cardamom pistachio cookies, baklava, and masgouf—bake in Victoria's kitchen. But their individual endeavors force a reckoning with the past, the future, and the truth—whatever it might be.

"Sassy, brash, acrobatic and colorful...I want to read it again and again." —Time

"Impressive...Soffer's style is natural and assured."—Meg Wolitzer, All Things Considered, NPR

"Breathtaking...a profoundly redemptive story about loss, self-discovery, and acceptance."—O: The Oprah Magazine

"Soffer's prose is as controlled as it is fresh, as incisive as it is musical." —Colum McCann, author of Let the Great World Spin
