An uplifting and magical debut about food, coming together and finding family in the most unexpected places.
For fans of Jenny Colgan! At the news of her mother's death, Natalie Tan returns home to San Francisco - it's time to confront some ghosts from the past. She is shocked to discover that the vibrant Chinatown neighbourhood of her childhood is fading. And she's even more surprised to learn she has inherited her grandmother's restaurant.
Before Natalie can continue her legacy, she must follow the path laid out by the neighbourhood seer, cooking up three recipes from her grandmother's cookbook to bring luck, courage and love to her struggling neighbours. Natalie has no desire to help the community that abandoned her to look after her mother all those years ago.
But with the support of a surprising new friend and a budding romance, she starts to realise that maybe her neighbours have been there for her all along . . .
