Like Water for Chocolate, by Laura Esquivel


Enjoyable magical realism story of a girl growing up as the youngest of three daughters under an overbearing mother. For those who have read [b:The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake|7048800|The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake|Aimee Bender|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1320541766s/7048800.jpg|7299170], imagine this as the other side of the story -- Tita is the primary cook in her family and the book follows her making meals for important occasions and putting her emotions into the food, which then effect all the consumers as well as the events around the meals.
