Les Liaisons Culinaires
One woman, two suitors, and seventeen delicious dishes: in Athens seduction starts in the kitchen . . .Dimitris and Damocles live in the same apartment building, on the same floor. They share a love of cooking, and, it soon transpires, a lover -- Nana. What follows is the story of their competition to win Nana's heart through her stomach -- each performing ever more succulent culinary feats in an effort to depose his rival. As the dishes pile up, and the recipes -- listed in their entirety at the end of every chapter -- grow more and more mouthwatering, it becomes a bizarre and comic duel, fought with sea-urchin salads, stuffed grape leaves, and delicacies from all corners of the Aegean, to win the consummate femme fatale.
