9781565125599: Last Bite

After ending a bad relationship, Casey Costello, an executive chef at a morning television show, swears off men. Who has the time anyway? She's busy overseeing a rambunctious food-prep crew in a kitchen the size of a closet; trying to please high-maintenance celebrity guest chefs; and dealing with her large extended Italian American family, who believe that the solutions to life's problems involve food. And in the midst of her high-energy, stress-inducing career—punctuated by a steady stream of parties and restaurant openings that must not be missed—she's trying to uncover why Sally Woods, a grand old dame of the culinary world and regular on the television show, is suddenly ready to jump ship and find a new station and a new executive chef.

When Danny O'Shea, a handsome chef from one of New York's hottest new restaurants, makes a guest appearance on the show, Casey smells trouble. But feelings ignite faster than a flambé dessert, especially when Danny whips up a few surprises during a television shoot in Italy.

Narrated in Casey's smart and refreshingly disarming voice, Last Bite is an irresistible culinary caper, with characters whose appetites are as big as their personalities.

Book Description:

A delicious and dishy romp through the food world by a former executive chef to Julia Child.

After ending a bad relationship, twenty-nine-year-old Casey Costello, an executive chef at a morning television show, swears off men. Who has the time? She’s busy overseeing a rambunctious food-prep crew in a kitchen the size of a closet; trying to please high-maintenance celebrity guest chefs; dealing with her mother, who believes that the solution to all of life’s problems involves food; and trying to figure out why Sally Woods, a grand old dame of the culinary world and a regular on the show, has been acting so strangely ever since her new agent entered the picture.

When Danny O’Shea, a hot new chef from Ireland, makes a guest appearance, Casey wants nothing to do with him. But feelings ignite faster than a flambé dessert when Danny whips up a few surprises during the show’s shoot in Italy.
