TV cooking personality Augusta Simpson determines to take her show to Number 1 to remove the threat of a younger presenter being brought in as co-host. The format of her show will be a series of intimate dinners where she teaches a group of younger people to make rich, sensuous meals -- real food for real people -- nourishing the soul as well as tempting the tastebuds. The guests are all her friends -- an assorted group of ages and races with different problems, which, of course, get solved along with the dinners. Comfort food. A celebration of life itself. www.comfortfoodnovel.com
