Books On Our Radar: Hungry Hearts: 13 Tales of Food & Love

Hungry Hearts: 13 Tales of Food & Love is the newest anthology that has me salivating just looking at the cover! Interconnected short stories about food and love, from 13 different authors, yes please! It is no surprise that I am excited about this book. I constantly drool over food scenes in all my favorite books. Some books I can remember the food more than I can the plot! Ha! I definitely want to read anything that has a descriptive line like:

“Where magic and food and love are sometimes one and the same.”

Hungry Hearts: 13 Tales of Food & Love is releasing this summer and I absolutely can’t wait, so add it to your TBR, or preorder for the June 18th release!

From some of your favorite bestselling and critically acclaimed authors—including Sandhya Menon, Anna-Marie McLemore, and Rin Chupeco—comes a collection of interconnected short stories that explore the intersection of family, culture, and food in the lives of thirteen teens.

A shy teenager attempts to express how she really feels through the confections she makes at her family’s pasteleria. A tourist from Montenegro desperately seeks a magic soup dumpling that could cure his fear of death. An aspiring chef realizes that butter and soul are the key ingredients to win a cooking competition that could win him the money to save his mother’s life.

Welcome to Hungry Hearts Row, where the answers to most of life’s hard questions are kneaded, rolled, baked. Where a typical greeting is, “Have you had anything to eat?” Where magic and food and love are sometimes one and the same.

Told in interconnected short stories, Hungry Hearts explores the many meanings food can take on beyond mere nourishment. It can symbolize love and despair, family and culture, belonging and home.
