Summary
Lars Thorvald, a chef from the Midwest, has three loves in his life: his kitchen, Cynthia, his wife; and Eva, his newborn daughter. When Cynthia falls in love with wine, and a sommelier very dashing, Lars is left to raise Eva on his own, and devotes his life to sharing his passions with his only child, starting with puréed pork shoulder. Eva will find solace and salvation in the flavors of her native Minnesota, after a childhood shaken by tragedy. Eva is blessed with a once-in-a-generation palate and ultimately becomes the mysterious chef behind the reservation for dinner which is the most sought-after in the country. J. Ryan Stradal delves into the American heartland, with a voice like no other, sweeping the vast landscape of Lutheran church bake-offs, chili-pepper-eating contests, and the opening of deer season to capture the zeitgeist of the Midwest and the rise of foodie culture. Each chapter found here tells the story of how a single dish or ingredient came into Eva's life; culminating in a feast, opulent and emotional, that is a testament to Eva's spirit and resilience. -- Provided by publisher, taken from container
