Description

Florence, 1466. A lust for life, a passion for power and a taste for adventure... In Florence, everyone has a passion. With 60,000 souls inside the city, crammed into a cobweb of clattering streets, countless alleys, towers, workshops, tanneries, cloisters, churches and burial grounds, they live their lives in the narrow world between the walls.

Nino Latini knows that if you want to survive without losing yourself completely, then you've got to have a passion. But Nino's greatest gift will be his greatest curse.

Nino can taste things that other people cannot. Every flavour, every ingredient comes alive for him as vividly as a painting and he puts his artistry to increasingly extravagant use. In an age of gluttony and conspicuous consumption, his unique talent leads him into danger.

His desire for the beautiful Tessina Delmazza and his longing to create the perfect feast could prove deadly.

Nino must flee Florence to save his life and if he ever wants to see his beloved again, he must entrust himself entirely to the tender mercies of fortune.
