Recipe for love – Katie Fforde


When Zoe Harper wins a coveted place in a televised cookery competition, she can’t wait to put her cooking skills to the test. Add a very desirable judge. But as the competition heats up, she realises she’s developing an inconvenient crush on one of the judges, the truly delicious Gideon Irving. Stir in a heaped tablespoon of romance. All too soon there’s more than canapes, cupcakes and cordon bleu at stake. Will Zoe win the competition, or is Gideon one temptation too far?

My opinion

‘Recipe for love’ was one of the books I recently picked up at the American Book Centre, in the discount section. For a fiver I didn’t mind taking this book home, especially since it reminded me of Masterchef Australia, of which I’m a huge fan.

Don’t expect a difficult or heavy novel, because that’s what ‘Recipe for love’ by Katie Fforde definitely isn’t. But it is one delicious chicklit in which you can lose yourself. Katie Fforde has added some stereotypes to the story but that kinda makes it even more fun. You know from the beginning which character(s) to hate and love.

I love chicklits, especially after reading thrillers or intense novels. I hadn’t read a Katie Fforde book before. I really enjoyed the book, although at times it did feel a bit dragging. But despite that it was an easy read and fitted my needs perfectly. I will definitely pick up another Katie Fforde book again.


‘Recipe for love’ by Katie Fforde is an easy read with a nice story. Sometimes it can feel a bit dragging but the setting (a cooking competition) makes up for a lot.
