  • 5 stars "Juxtaposes the difficulties faced by two women with similar interests who lived in different times and places. The younger one draws on the experience of the older to make sense--and some measure of success--of her own life. The act of re-creating the recipes in the famous cookbook as faithfully as possible, within a limited time frame, provides not only a challenge to the woman in the modern era, but also the link with the older woman who originally created the recipes. A thoroughly charming premise, and enjoyable performances."
