"…a great romp set in a Vancouver restaurant. This was good fun." (SF Crowsnest)
Chef Eddie and his partner Amanda luck into a cheap site for the new restaurant they want to build. The old man they buy it from warns them that the site is cursed and makes them promise never to use saffron in their restaurant. But Eddie isn't superstitious, and when a career-making critic shows up asking for his famous Badaboom monkfish dish—which contains saffron—well, what's an ambitious chef to do?
