1798 Bucharest: A magical, dark adventure A year full of intrigue and political machinations: a slave-chef lives in Bucharest, sought after by everyone. His cooking is sublime, satisfying even the sophisticated tastes of the Prince, who steals him from his rightful owner and installs him in the Palace. However, no one knows that the chef has in his possession a witch's recipe book: the Book of Perilous Dishes. The recipes in this magical book can bring about damaging sincerity, forgetfulness, the gift of prediction, or hysterical laughter. And the rightful owner of this book is fourteen-year-old Patca, initiated in the occult arts. Patca comes to Bucharest, to her uncle, Cuviosu Zaval, to recover this book, but she finds him murdered and the Book of Perilous Dishes has disappeared without trace. All that Zaval has left her is a strange map she must decipher. Travelling from Romania to France and on to Germany to do so, Patca's family's true past and powers are revealed, as is her connection to Silica the cook...

Övrig information

Doina Rusti is one of Romania's most successful writers of historical and speculative fiction and has won many prizes. She grew up under communism and this has informed her writing, as have her varied Balkan legacies: a Turkish grandmother, a Macedonian-Romanian great-grandmother. Her grandfather was in a Russian internment camp until Stalin died, and her father was killed when she was 11 years old. In the communist era she was a high school teacher and, although a prolific writer, was unable to publish her works. She joined the street protests that ushered in the 1989 revolution. She lives in and writes about Bucharest in all her novels, for her "the happiest city in the world".
