Listeners are treated to a tempting buffet of audio storytelling in this food-themed anthology of short fiction. United by a shared setting--Hungry Hearts Row, a fictional neighborhood famous for its multicultural mix of eateries--the stories offer an inclusive assortment of characters and genres. While all eight narrators turn in immersive, unobtrusive performances, there are a few standouts: Rendah Heywood's British-accented narration lends authenticity to "Rain," a poignant story of grief and reconnection; Leila Buck's matter-of-fact delivery makes an unexpected note of horror all the more chilling in "The Missing Ingredient"; and Almarie Guerra brings a fitting sweetness and warmth to "Panadería Pastelería," which features a uniquely talented baker. This is an audio experience that listeners will want to savor. R.H. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2019]
