Delicious by Ruth Reichl

Billie Breslin starts her new job as a assistant to the editor on the food magazine, "Delicious". She starts to work at Fontinelli's Italian cheese store in New York City. She has an extraordinary palate that recognizes flavors. The magazine closes and she is kept on to honor the guarantee, working in the building all by herself. She discovers the locked up library to do research for her clients. She and Sammy the traveling correspondent for Delicious discover a secret room in the library and make an amazing discovery. The story reveals that she has a secret about her sister and it hold clues why she doesn't cook any longer. A good fresh story about a cook and her past. Reichl was the editor of Gourmet magazine for ten years before they closed their doors and stopped publishing an old magazine due to the downturn in publishing in general. Writing is her forte and this is her first work of fiction. Well done
