What is a Cookbook Novel?

A Cookbook Novel provides the reader a story throughout which the characters often interact in the preparation and enjoyment of great meals, be they sandwiches or feasts.  Recipes are provided at the end of each chapter to guide the reader in the making of the meals enjoyed by the characters during that chapter.

Gazpacho and Revenge is a Cookbook Novel which contains over 40 recipes, “all made easy,” for meals enjoyed by the book’s characters as their story of revenge, love, and seeking happiness spans more than 40 years and ranges over three continents.

This Cookbook Novel highlights the truth that the gathering, preparation, and consumption of food is an integral, important, and hopefully pleasant part of the reader’s own life story.
