Overview

Deep Dish by Mary Kay Andrews, Isabel Keating

"Tasty Southern adventure...[Andrews is] the queen of sass."Daytona Beach News-Journal

After years of hard work, Gina Foxton, chef extraordinaire and former runner-up Miss Teen Vidalia Onion, is hosting her own show Fresh Start, on Georgia public television. She's also dating the producer. But when Fresh Start goes bad—and her boyfriend is caught in flagrante delicto with the boss's wife—Gina decides it's time to pursue bigger dreams. Namely a gig on national television.

Gina knows she's destined to be the Cooking Channel's next superstar. But the execs also have their eyes on Tate Moody, Mr. "Kill It and Grill It" himself, host of the hunting, fishing, and cooking show Vittles. The ultimate man's man, Tate is a tasty side of beef with a large, swooning female fan base. Gina's loyal devotees consist of her free-spirited college-dropout sister and her mother...who calls every single day.

When the smoke clears there can be only one TV chef standing, and Gina and Tate are ready for the cook-off of their lives.

What struck me first off was the incredible humor and truth in this book. All at the same time, things fall together and apart in a wonderful way. One of the best I've read in a long time

This book was a fun and easy read. Very now with the book being based on cooking wars and a cooking channel style theme. Really enjoyable.

This is my least favorite Mary Kay Andrews book - Savannah Blues being one of the best books I have ever read in my life. Deep Dish just seemed to drag on and on and on. Picked up some at the end but not enough to salvage the beginning. Not usual for this author. Still, I am looking forward to her next book!

I am a HUGE fan of Mary Kay Andrews. Normally her characters are so unique and quirky and I get swept up in the mystery and fun of the story. With "Deep Dish" I was disappointed. I found the two main characters to be lacking in substance. I found Gina to be whiny and such a whimpy woman. And Tate was predictable throughout the story. There were some interesting moments in the story but overall I was let down by one of my favorite authors.

A good "beach" read. Predictable, but still enjoyable. In these hard economic times it's a great escape!

I am a very big Mary Kay Andrews fan, let me start with that. I LOVE her quirky characters, great settings and interesting predictaments her characters get in. I also love how readable her writing is - great to get lost in her books at the beach or on a rainy day. That said, this book really failed to deliver for me. The characters were cute, and could have gone a long way. I didn't feel like they were as interesting as her other characters in previous books. Didn't ever get to the emotional connection with them, or deep interest in their outcome. That said, I also wanted an epilogue or something at the end to see what happened in a few months, so you could get a better sense that everything did work out great for the main character. Left readers hanging a bit. I still love MKA and will always read her great books. But this isn't one I'd even recommend to a friend or bother sharing. It was just okay.

I have read other books by Mary Kay Andrews, especially the "Savannah" series and found them funny and enjoyable. This one went on a bit too long with too predictable an ending.

The idea of two battling southern chefs was a good idea that just didn't jell (food metaphor, ha). I think the main problem is that there's just no sizzle (ha, again) between the main characters. What's really ironic is I kept getting the sense that the actual romance was happening 'off camera' because I kept thinking why in the world do these two people even like each other, much less love. As it turned out, that's kind of what happens, but it sure did spoil the novel for me.

First let me say that I've read all of Mary Kay ANdrews previous books and found them very good. I recommend her all the time and have been anxiously waiting for Deep Dish. I am SOOOO glad I got it from the library and didn't fork out nearly $30 for this hardback. Is it awful? No. Is it terrible? No. It's simply ok. A huge disappointment after enjoying all her other work so much. Never once did I find myself caring about either Regina or Tate. In fact by about page 300, I actually said out loud 'hmm, this book is actually boring'! Do yourself a favor, use the library or wait for paperback. This one simply isn't worth the price of hardcover.

I don't normally read books like 'Deep Dish,' but I loved it! It was a bit predictable, but it was nice to have the ending to look forward to. Mary Kay Andrews is so very descriptive you are taken away to Southern Georgia immediately! There is witty banter and an adorable love story. I couldn't put it down and I can't wait to read more from Andrews! If you are looking for an easy read with a great story, this is the book for you!

I thought this was a comic relief. The characters were honest and human. I actually found myself laughing out loud, which isn't a common occurence. The romance was something that made it hard to breath and made me cry. It was a very emotional page turner.

Thirty years old Chef Gina Foxton is an expert on Southern style cooking, but with a healthy approach. She is highly regarded with her own cooking show Fresh Start on Georgia Public Television. However while filming her latest show, she notices a new crew who provide substitute products like Cheez-Ease. She goes berserk claiming it is ¿artificial cheese made out of recycled dry-cleaning bags¿ her anger is because her reputation is built on healthy recipes. However her show becomes history when the CEO of the prime sponsor Tastee-Town Foods Wiley Bickerstaff III pulled out. Gina is stunned because Wiley has been her biggest supporter, but learns the truth that her producer and boyfriend E. Scott Zaleski was caught sleeping with Wiley¿s wife. Gina knows the Cooking Channel is seeking a new show. They are undecided between Gina¿s Fresh Start and Tate Moody¿s Vittles. To choose the brass decides a reality show cook-off contest between Gina and Tate will bring in viewers. However, under the TV lights, the two cooking spectrum opposites begin to simmer with an attraction that boils into love. --- Although the romance comes in the latter half of the tale, readers will adore this amusing kitchen war. The story line is fast-paced as Tate and Gina compete through food fights and other embarrassing scenarios the humorous plot stews between healthy and grill it. Readers will agree with Gina¿s sister that this pair has chemistry, but there is only room for one in the kitchen even if Tate wants to take Gina on the table. --- Harriet Klausner

I have all of Mary Kay Andrews’ books; however, I missed this one along the way. Listened to the audio version which the narrator did a good job. Gina is the host of a local cooking show in Atlanta and her sponsor drops her and finds out her producer (boyfriend) is sleeping with the sponsor’s wife. If you enjoy southern women, some heavy competition, food fights, cooking and some romance with some wit and charm you will enjoy!

Love reading Mary Kay Andrews' books! Laugh out loud funny with characters you wish were your friends. This selection fell flat for me. The characters were cliche and didn't really grow and learn much from the story. The leading lady leads a painfully routine life until the end of the book when she completely steps out of character and becomes the love of the leading man's life. Expected but in real life, their different personalities wouldn't have made it work. Any of Ms. Andrews' other titles will give you a great read so I recommend you choose one of them and skip this one.
