(The Cook of Castamar)
Fiction, novel, 764 pp
La cocinera de Castamar tells the story of an agoraphobic cook, at the house of a Spanish nobleman whose heart she conquers, against all odds. Clara, the protagonist, lives in her own small universe, the kitchen of Castamar, where the only windows to the outside world are the dishes she cooks with so much passion. But she also is an independent woman, who knows how to read and write and who lives on her own, in a world full of enemies and lies.
“La cocinera de Castamar“, by Fernando Múñez, will appeal to all your five senses. A novel that submerges you completely in the experience of another era as it transports you deeply into the very Palace of Castamar. Lola Gulias - Planeta
