Hi, I’m Jim McKeown, welcome to Likely Stories, a weekly review of fiction, Non-Fiction, and Poetry.
With hundreds of books in my TBR pile, sometimes it takes years to get to a particular book. I am not sure how I came across this one, The Restaurant of Love Regained, by Ito Ogawa. This interesting and absorbing book was released in 2008. It is a splendid story of love, loss, and Japanese cooking. Ito was born in 1973 and she authored several children’s books. She also runs a popular website about cooking, where she supplies daily recipes of Japanese cuisine.
