Food industry workers - you think you have it bad? Try working your way up from dishwasher to head chef - in the middle ages. Complete with recipes, but please leave the squirrels alone.

Lush, scrumptious writing but undeveloped plot, esp. between hero & heroine.

Just not my thing. I couldn't get into it, so I gave up before I got very far.
