Publisher's Summary

Twentysomething Sunee seems to have it all: beauty, talent, and a charming, wealthy, and very attentive French lover. So why is she so miserable? Sunee, who was born in South Korea, recounts her tragic beginnings (her mother abandoned her when she was 3), her pleasant but far-from-perfect upbringing with her adoptive family in New Orleans, and her passionate love affair with 40-year-old French entrepreneur Olivier Baussan, who travels the globe and owns a sprawling residence in Provence. Whenever she feels lonely, panicked, or out of place, Sunee finds solace in preparing gourmet meals. But time in Olivier's kitchen brings her no closer to discovering who she really is.

So boring

I kept waiting for something exciting to happen, but it never did. The author spent WAY too much time describing the character's self doubt and not enough time describing the people she met and places she visited.
I enjoyed the recipes at the end of each chapter.
However, you could cut out 1/2 of this book (while living in Provence) and not miss a thing....
