My review: Chef Maurice and a Spot of Truffle by J.A. Lang


It makes me want to go hunt for truffles but I probably find the deadly mushrooms instead.  This Chef Maurice character makes me laugh, hungry and want to own a pig.  I like him.  I even went and got the prequel Chef Marurice and the Rather Fishy Tale.

Chef Maurice owns Le Cochon Rouge a restraint in the Cotswolds. He is always eating.  He is curious or plain snoop and passionate about food.
He is out of mushrooms.  His supplier of wild herb and mushrooms has missed his delivery.  He hears that he has something new to bring makes him go to his house. He gets caught going in and taking his order out of the fridge.

food critic Arthur Wordington-Smythe is Maurice good friend.  He is married.  They found a special truffle in his fridge and are determined to find his source.  It is a rare truffle.

The setting for the book is Cotswolds village, England.  We learn a lot about mushrooms and truffles.

Maurice finds a pig that likes truffles and wants to use him.  He really does not like animals but changes.

There are a lot of characters that I do like and want to see more of them.

I was given this ebook to read and in return agreed to give a honest review and be part of Chef Maurice and a Spot of Truffle.
