Overview

Food, Love, Desire ... and More Food.

An intimate, beautifully illustrated peek into the fictional journal and sketchbook of a culinary artist.

Cook Until Desired Tenderness is an enchanting journey of reminiscences, drawings, and morsels of prose in which food is a love story, and love is a food story. Filled with vivid descriptions of luscious feasts, misunderstood menus, and kitchen chaos, these rich tales simmer with flirtation, passion, heartbreak, and humor.

The story:
Sugar is quirky, very creative, a bit of a kleptomaniac, and an occasional voyeur. She is also the fictional chef and author of a detailed journal in which she records her food history in order to create her own traditions. As Sugar finds her way through life, she chronicles her attempts at various cooking styles and respective love affairs. Along with flirtation, passion, heartbreak, and comfort, her stories contain accounts of frenzied feasts, misunderstood menus, and kitchen chaos. The writing simmers on pages spiced with notes written on napkins, paintings of mouth-watering food, long-lost recipe cards, and the handwritten love letters that are found folded up next to them. Chapters range from a quick appetizer about an Ă  la minute relationship to a good, long stew over a love that never quite reaches the boiling point.
