In Pauline Parry’s delightful debut memoir, the lesson is clear: eat, drink, and have fun—and leave the dishes until tomorrow. 

It all begins when, as a newly single mother, Pauline gets an unexpected invitation to rent a flat above a bistro in a quaint English market town. After moving in, she finds she loves the excitement of the kitchen and of being on her own. But Pauline Parry is not alone for long. 

She is soon joined on her journey by Dennis, a handsome carpenter, and the result is a snowy romantic Christmas wedding. Every juicy detail of Pauline’s relationship with Dennis and every bite of the cuisine Parry learns to master is chronicled in her debut memoir and cookbook, My Culinary Love Story, a story that takes the listener from one English Christmas to the next. 

The story is told in the warm, easy voice of a new best friend you haven’t met yet in this charming collection of memories and recipes. 

My Culinary Love Story takes place over 18 chapters which map the author’s serendipity, punctuated by recipes from the era. Through it all, Parry recounts her setbacks with resilience, and her many victories with gratitude.
