An culinary novella, written and illustrated by Cleo Papanikolas. Hard bound, 96 pages, 9 1/2" high by 71/4" wide. Layers of paintings, sketches, bits of recipe cards, and handwritten notes tell the story of a "Sugar," a girl who spends summers on a commune where junk food is shunned. Sugar discovers an old recipe box full of insight on how the former occupants of "Karmicland" ate and loved. She goes on to get mixed up in an "A La Minute Relationship," and the chaos of "Dishonest Food." And then finds herself in a restaurant kitchen. Filled with vivid descriptions of luscious feasts, misunderstood menus, and kitchen chaos, these rich tales simmer with flirtation, passion, heartbreak, and humor.
This is not a cookbook - It is a full-color story book for grown-ups, with illustrations filling every page.
