The authenticity of Luis Moreno's narration makes this audiobook especially good listening. After his brother, Felix, is tragically killed, Carlos Portillo is persuaded by Felix's ghost to flee Mexico for the San Juan Islands and, fueled by their shared love of food, get a job in a renowned restaurant. The chats between Carlos and Felix's ghost are hysterical as Felix admonishes his cautious brother to relax and rains jokes and advice down on him with increasing frequency. As the kitchen scenes crackle with the intensity and frenetic flow of a popular restaurant, the members of the multicultural staff are portrayed beautifully by Moreno. Each chapter begins with a mouthwatering recipe, and Carlos's descriptions of preparing food sparkle with passion, keeping listeners hungry for more.
