Roberto Perrone
La cucina degli amori impossibili (The Cuisine of Impossible Loves)
A novel, Mondadori, May 2013, 298 pages

“Roberto Perrone wrote a perfect comedy, mixing all his passions – haute cuisine, cinema, pop music, Liguria – with easy going, romantic, and sometimes even dramatic tones.”
Sette

“An easy style and a kind of irony able to understate the tradition… an overview on the protagonists of Italian cuisine and the mainstays of the Ligurian tradition, from grandmother’s taverns to critic-friendly menu.”
Corriere della Sera 

A village on the beautiful coast of Liguria, two restaurants in ruthless competition, two families at war with one another, an impossible love: the Montagues and Capulets confront each others in the kitchen.

When Rossella meets Augusto on her flight back from the United States to Italy, it’s love at first sight. But love is not so simple if your families lead the two most famous restaurants in town and have been competitors for decades. Like Romeo and Juliet, the two lovers will have to face hate, envy, resentment, passion… Surrounded by the sensual enjoyment for food, with all its flavour and aroma, the destiny of the two families is in a secret ingredient for legendary Pansotti. Here lies the key to the strongly desired third Michelin star.
