Descripción

A June 2020 Indie Next List Pick!

From talented new writer, Yaffa S. Santos, comes this unforgettable, heartwarming, and hilarious rom-com about chefs, cooking, love, and self-discovery that is a cross between The Hating Game and Sweetbitter.

Lumi Santana is a chef with the gift of synesthesia—she can perceive a person’s emotions just by tasting their cooking. Despite being raised by a single mother who taught her that dreams and true love were silly fairy tales, she decides to take a chance and puts her heart and savings into opening a fusion restaurant in Inwood, Manhattan. The restaurant offers a mix of the Dominican cuisine she grew up with and other world cuisines that have been a source of culinary inspiration to her.

When Lumi’s eclectic venture fails, she is forced to take a position as a sous chef at a staid, traditional French restaurant in midtown owned by Julien Dax, a celebrated chef known for his acid tongue as well as his brilliant smile. Lumi and Julien don’t get along in the kitchen--to say Lumi is irritated by Julien’s smug attitude is an understatement, and she secretly vows never to taste his cooking. Little does she know that her resolve doesn’t stand a chance against Julien’s culinary prowess.

As Julien produces one delectable dish after another, each one tempting Lumi with its overwhelming aromas and gorgeous presentations, she can no longer resist and samples one of his creations. She isn’t prepared for the feelings that follow as she’s overcome with intense emotions. She begins to crave his cooking throughout the day, which throws a curveball in her plan to save up enough money and move on as soon as possible. Plus, there’s also the matter of Esme, Julien’s receptionist who seems to always be near and watching. As the attraction between Lumi and Julien simmers, Lumi experiences a tragedy that not only complicates her professional plans, but her love life as well...

Clever, witty, and romantic, A Taste of Sage is sure to delight and entertain readers until the very last page.

    Such a wholesome read! I would definitely watch a tv show based on this story. I especially enjoyed the touch of mysticism in the plot; it made Lumi's synesthesia a lot more interesting and unique. I really wish we could see more of Lumi and Julien's sweet relationship. ❤

    ?A TASTE OF SAGE THOUGHTS ?

    I held onto this one for the right time and I’m so glad that I did! A Taste of Sage was the perfect audiobook to get me through this day.

    This was a food inspired romance involving Lumi Santana and Julien Dax! Their romance took off quickly and I’m not all the way convinced I care for Julien but it was still a whirlwind romance nonthemess. Lumi’s unique ability to sense a person’s emotions by tasting their cooking offered this romance a whimsical, magical realism touch that I haven’t seen in a romance read.

    I also loved Lumi’s family unit. Her mother’s own failed relationships influenced Lumi’s resistance to deeply fall for Julien but we see growth and honesty among Lumi and her mother when she needed it the most.

    Overall a good read! There’s recipes in this book too so BAM!!!!

    I enjoyed this, but it felt a little disjointed. I think the idea was great but it was hard for me to grasp times, the transitions were a little strange. I definitely liked the characters though.
