With this appetizing series, Alexander McCall Smith, the beloved and best-selling author of The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency series, takes us into the often less-than-glamorous life of a food writer. Paul Stuart spends his days traveling through Europe tasting delicious food and savoring fine wines. It should be a life of ease, yet somehow Paul always seems to find himself embroiled in affairs both local and of the heart, often at the expense of whatever book he is meant to be writing. It’s a recipe for drama, spiced with McCall Smith’s incomparable wit and charm.
