Chef Maurice is a man with a big heart and a appetite to match.He only wants the best quality ingredients for his restaurant, Le Cochon Rouge so when he finds a wooden fish with a cryptic message carved in it from his new fish supplier, he wants nothing to do with it and he is angry that he had to change suppliers because his previous one retired thinking it must be somehow related.
His friend and food critic, Arthur wants to try to solve the mystery of the wooden fish and Chef Maurice grudgliny tags along to the Cornish Seaside to try to reel in the fishes owner and have some tasty fish and chips along the way.
This was a fun and short but enjoyable read, being a prequel to the first in this series coming soon. Chef Maurice's sous chef, Patrick and the Le Cochon Kitchen were very enjoyable additions to the story. His food critic friend, Authur also made the story very entertaining. Great food descriptions are what I loved most in this British Culinary Mystery. I loved Chef Maurice's stereotypical chefs attitude and hearty appetite all awhile looking for his next meal I look forward to reading and reviewing the first book the Chef Maurice Mysteries.
