Hungry Woman in Paris is author Josefina López' first novel. The story is about a journalist and activist named Canela who believes passion is an essential ingredient in life, but lately it seems to be in short supply. Using the ticket meant for her honeymoon, Canela escapes from Los Angeles to Paris, where she impulsively enrolls in the city's most prestigious culinary institute. There, still haunted by her cousin Luna's death, she begins a wondrous journey against the backdrop of a storied city and amid the enticing aromas of purees, sauces and broths. Making some new - and surprising - friends, and letting haute cuisine reawaken her spiritual and sensual sides, Canela discovers just who she is and what she wants, to hopefully, once again savor the world around her.
