Just a Taste (Berkley Sensation) Deirdre Martin

From the back of the book:

For delizioso paste, go to Dante’s. For a sumptuous cordon bleu, go to Vivi’s. To really heat things up…get the together.

Since his wife’s untimely death, Anthony Dante has thrown himself into his cooking, making his restaurant, Dante’s, a Brooklyn institution. So far, his biggest problem has been keeping his retired hockey-star brother out of the kitchen. But now, a mademoiselle is invading his turf. And you know what they say: Too many chefs spoil the neighborhood…

Stunning Vivi Robitaille can’t wait to showcase her taste but-tingling recipes in her brand-new bistro, Vivi’s. Her only problem is an arrogant Italian chef across the street who actually thinks he’s competition. The table is set for a culinary war – until things start getting spicy outside of the kitchen…

This book was fun to read. I enjoyed the love/hate relationship between Anthony and Vivi. Their verbal sparing over butter or shortening will have you laughing and then fanning yourself at the level chemistry between them. I have read the other NY Blades books and love “seeing” some familiar faces. This book is different form the others, since it doesn’t have a hockey player as a main character. But, the story of the dueling chefs is one you can’t miss. Vivi is as passionate as any French woman, and Anthony is a stereo-typical Italian male, and when these two get together you better hide the knives.
