Inspired by love at any age & Basque food
The Cooking School at San Sebastian, the second in Karen Tripson’s series, set in
Seattle, mingles stories of the men and women, of all ages, whose common bond is an interest
in food, wine, art and literature.
Weaving the stories of a gallery’s owners struggles in a poor economy, an older couples
falling in love (with the attendant problems of money, adult children), and a beautiful mysterious
French art connesuire, creates a suspenseful, humorous, well-paced novel of manners. Falling
in love is not easy at any age.
A cooking class at San Sebastian, Spain, taken by one of the minor characters, leads
to the art gallery creating a show of the art of the Basque of the American West (and some
recipes for their wonderful food served at the gallery opening).
Many of the characters were introduced in The Cooking School at Kuala Lumpur, but
it isn’t necessary to have read the first novel. The Cooking Class at San Sebastian hints at
new stories to come in what will be the third novel in this charming series.
