Julie a Julia meets Jodi Picoult in this poignant and delectable novel with recipes, chronicling one womana€™s journey of self-discovery at the stove. After the unexpected death of her parents, shy and sheltered twenty-six-year-old Ginny Selvaggio, isolated by Aspergera€™s Syndrome, seeks comfort in family recipes. But the rich, peppery scent of her Nonnaa€™s soup draws an unexpected visitor into the kitchen: the ghost of Nonna herself, dead for twenty years, who appears with a cryptic warninga€”before vanishing like steam from a cooling dish. A haunted kitchen isna€™t Ginnya€™s only challenge. Her domineering sister Amanda insists on selling their parentsa€™ house in Philadelphia, the only home Ginny has ever known. As she packs up her parentsa€™ belongings, Ginny finds evidence of family secrets she isna€™t sure how to unravel. She knows how to turn milk into cheese and cream into butter, but she doesna€™t know why her mother hid a letter in the bedroom chimney, or the identity of the woman in her fathera€™s photographs. The more she learns, the more she realizes the keys to these riddles lie with the dead, and therea€™s only one way to get answers: cook from dead peoplea€™s recipes, raise their ghosts, and ask them. Offering a fascinating glimpse into the unique mind of a woman suffering from Aspergera€™s and featuring evocative and mouth-watering descriptions of food, this lyrical novel is as delicious and joyful as a warm brownie.Are there any particular websites you draw comfort or inspiration from, as Ginny does from Kitcherati?
