Description

1798 Bucharest: A magical, dark adventureA year full of intrigue and political machinations: a slave-chef lives in Bucharest, sought after by everyone.

His cooking is sublime, satisfying even the sophisticated tastes of the Prince, who steals him from his rightful owner and installs him in the Palace.

However, no one knows that the chef has in his possession a witch's recipe book: the Book of Perilous Dishes.

Travelling from Romania to France and on to Germany to do so, Patca's family's true past and powers are revealed, as is her connection to Silica the cook...
