At forty-three, Myriam has been a wife, mother, and lover—but never a restauranteur. When she opens Chez Moi in a quiet neighborhood in Paris, she has no idea how to run a business, but armed only with her love of cooking, she is determined to try. Barely able to pay the rent, Myriam secretly sleeps in the dining room and bathes in the kitchen sink, while struggling to come to terms with the painful memories of her past. But soon enough her delectable cuisine brings her many neighbors to Chez Moi, and Myriam finds that she may get a second chance at life and love. Redolent with the sights, smells, and tastes of Paris, Chez Moi is a charming story that will appeal to the many readers who fell in love with Joanne Harris’s Chocolat and Laura Esquivel’s Like Water for Chocolate.

This book touched my heart. Had all my favourite elements: set in a bistro in France, with food playing a major role. The main character, Myriam at age 43 attempts to open a restaurant with only a passion for food, no business sense, and some major personality flaws. Loved the sidekick characters - the waiter who saves the day, the lonely florist living next door. It's all about second chances.
