Cooking for Picasso Reviews

  • Katie Nunes

    I would give 3.5 stars if I could. I did enjoy the two stories (grandmother and granddaughter), the discussions of the art and the cooking, and also the images of the south of France. But it took a long time for me to engage with the characters and at times it felt a bit contrived. Ultimately, I did find it to be an enjoyable read, and I feel I learned a lot more about Picasso than I knew before,

  • Susan Ovans

    Pretty awful– trite, predictable, and clichéd. Also, I am tired of books that flash back to tell a parallel story from the past every other chapter. That's this year's trend in fiction, and it's annoying.

    I really wanted to like this book. It had all of the elements I like: France, art, cooking, and a mystery. But overall the book was just ok. The storyline was just too unbelievable with way too many coincidences. Sigh.

  • Nancy Brady

    Full disclosure: I received this novel through a First Reads Goodreads giveaway, but that in no way affected this review.

    4.5 stars.

    I am not a gourmet cook, unfortunately, because this review just calls for all kinds of adjectives that refers to cooking; however, having said that, this is a story of cooking, art, and love told through the past as well as the present.

  • Martie Nees Record

    The novel is actually two stories. Yes, it alternates in time but it also seems to be of two different genres; a romance novel and a historical fiction. One is narrated by a current day young American woman who goes to France to find a long lost treasure of her French grandmother’s. She enrolls in a cooking class, finds love with a bad boy chef (who of course has a heart of gold like most romance novels dictate), while embarking on an utterly unrealistic adventure. It reads so saccharine I might ...more

  • Pat Jorgenson Waterchilde

    What a wonderful read! Everything that makes a book a wonderful book all came together in this novel to make it an exceptional read. Ondine lives in France with her parents who own a resturant. It is 1936. A man, renting a nearby villa, has requested lunch be delivered everyday. Ondine's mother gives her the responsibility. The man turns out to be Picasso and a friendship forms. Fast forward to 2014 as Ondine's granddaughter worries over the medical condition of her mother and is troubled by the ...more

    I received a free copy of this book through Goodreads First Reads in exchange for a fair review.

    I was lost in the story and enjoyed reading this book so much that I could hardly put it down. Although I don’t care for stories going back and forth in time, two parallel time lines expanding from 1936 to 2016, covering the lives of four generations of women, great grandmother, grandmother, mother, and the daughter, is done so skillfully and personality traits of each woman are portrayed so intimatel
