The Love Goddess' Cooking School (2010)

Holly has just broken up with the man she knew was not the love of her life and has moved in with her grandmother Camilla on Blue Crab Island. How did she know John wasn't the love of her life? Camilla, the island's "love goddess", fortune teller and Italian cook/cooking-class teacher, predicted that Holly's true love would enjoy the old-world dish Sa Cordula, and John hated it. It is made of lamb intestines, butter and peas - what was her grandmother thinking? After Camilla dies, Holly takes over Camilla's Cucinotta, her grandmother's Italian delicacy shop and cooking class space. Having never been a very good cook, Holly will have to learn how to create her grandmother's perfect dishes, and learn to teach her class of four in just six weeks. Does Camilla's magical blood run in Holly, and will she be able to pull together a lesson plan in such a short time frame? Will she be able to beat the new competition for cooking classes in her small town? The most important question as far as Holly is concerned is, who is the sexy tall dark and handsome man she keeps running into, and does he like Sa Cordula? (AV)
