It is 1895. Robert Wallis, would-be poet, bohemian and impoverished dandy, accepts a commission from coffee merchant Samuel Pinker to categorise the different tastes of coffee - and encounters Pinker's free-thinking daughters, Philomenia, Ada and Emily. As romance blossoms with Emily, Robert realises that the Muse and marriage may not be incompatible after all. Sent to Abyssinia to make his fortune in the coffee trade, he becomes obsessed with a negro slave girl, Fikre. He decides to use the money he has saved to buy her from her owner - a decision that will change not only his own life, but the lives of the three Pinker sisters ...
Anthony Capella spends part of each year travelling in Italy. He is based in London and this is his third novel.
For The Food of Love: 'The Food of Love is a splendid, linen suit, panama hat, distant lawnmower kind of a book; guaranteed to whisk you far from this drizzly island, soothe you, warm you and return you home again without losing any of your luggage' Hugh Laurie ** 'I read it while travelling in Italy and really enjoyed the whole concept of chefs, love, Italy, food and sex' Rose Gray, owner of The River Cafe ** 'A deliciously romantic culinary comedy' Heat
