Natalie Tan’s Book of Love and Fortune

Natalie Tan’s Book of Love and Fortune by Roselle Lim was a delightful book. While I don’t normally enjoy magical realism, this book was so barely sprinkled with it, that it was OK. Natalie returns home after her mother’s death to say goodbye and open her grandmother’s restaurant. She is gifted her grandmother’s cookbook and uses it to help her neighbors. The recipes and food descriptions were all appealing as well. It’s reminiscent of Like Water for Chocolate and a book about orange slices that I can’t remember the title of for the life of me.
