內容簡介

一個有著絕妙味覺的年輕女子,成為最受歡迎餐廳的偶像主廚,Kitchens of the Great Midwest是今夏最受期待的初登場作品!

Cynthia,一個愛上紅酒和迷人侍酒男而拋夫棄女的人妻,留下廚師丈夫Lars一人獨力扶養女兒Eva。Lars決定把他對食物的愛傳授給女兒,Eva因為天生的好味覺,順理成章地成為父親的小小試菜員。在她11歲生日前,Eva如同職人一般在自己的衣櫃裡培育辣椒,她在明尼蘇達家鄉菜的味道中找到了慰藉與救贖,她所做的每一道菜,都代表了成為明星主廚的每一段旅程,登峰造極之作則是對她靈魂與韌性的試煉。當拋棄她的母親回到故鄉,母女倆會迸發出什麼樣的火花?

作者J. Ryan Stradal精準地描繪出美國中西部的精神、老饕文化的崛起、以及食物如何形塑認同感的過程。這本出人意料的母女故事,飽含了人生的酸甜苦辣。本書已被華納兄弟電影公司購入版權,預計改拍為電影或電視劇。

作者簡介:
J. Ryan Stradal出生於明尼蘇達,是出版社編輯,目前居住於洛杉磯,與一群作家和藝術家們共同主持關於食物、美酒與閱讀的社群Hot Dish。


To her single father, a chef, she's a pint-sized recipe tester and the love of his life. To the chilli chowdown contestants of Cook County, Illinois, she's a fire-eating demon. To the fashionable foodie goddess of supper clubs, she's a wanton threat. She's an enigma, a secret ingredient that no one can put their finger on. Eva will surprise everyone.

On the day before her eleventh birthday, she's cultivating chilli peppers in her wardrobe like a pro. Abandoned by her mother, gangly and poor, Eva arms herself with the weapons of her unknown heritage: a kick-ass palate and a passion bordering on obsession.

Over the years, her tastes grow, and so do her ambitions. One day Eva will be the greatest chef in the world. But along the way, the people she meets will shape her - and she, them - in ways unforgettable, riotous and profound. So she - for one - knows exactly who she is by the time her mother returns.

Kitchens of the Great Midwest is about the family you lose, the friends you make and chance connections that can define a life. Joyful, quirky or brazen, everyone lends their voice to tell Eva's story - one that's as heartwarming as it is irresistible, taking the bitter with the sweet.
