Praise for COOKING FOR PICASSO

“What would you do if you learned your grandmother had once whipped up meals for Pablo Picasso—and received a painting, now lost, in return? Head to the Côte d’Azur to track it down and fall in love with a chef, of course. Makeup artist Céline does just that in Aubray’s delicious, atmospheric novel. You’ll be glad you’re along for the ride.”— PEOPLE Magazine Pick for “The Best New Books”

“A tasty blend of romance, mystery, French cooking, plus the hairy old painter himself. Which Girl? What Window? Read on!” — MARGARET ATWOOD, via Twitter

“Thrilling, fast-paced and engaging, COOKING FOR PICASSO is a novel that vividly portrays the South of France. Intrigue, art, food and deception are woven together in a tale of love and betrayal around the life and legacy of Picasso. Touching and true, this well-written narrative made me long for my mother’s coq au vin and for the sun of Juan-les-Pins.”— JACQUES PÉPIN, chef, TV personality, author

“A colorful family saga . . . about how people take what seems to be worthless and make it into something priceless. . . . [Cooking for Picasso] reveals that value lies not in what you own, but in who you are.” — THE WASHINGTON POST
