The Romance Recipe Pdf Book is a Romance novel by Ruby Barrett
The Romance Recipe Summary
Amy Chambers: restaurant owner, micromanager, control freak.
Amy will do anything to revive her ailing restaurant, including hiring a former reality-show finalist with good connections and a lot to prove. But her hopes that Sophie’s skills and celebrity status would bring her restaurant back from the brink of failure are beginning to wane…
Sophie Brunet: grump in the kitchen/sunshine in the streets, took thirty years to figure out she was queer.
Sophie just wants to cook. She doesn’t want to constantly post on social media for her dead-in-the-water reality TV career, she doesn’t want to deal with Amy’s take-charge personality and she doesn’t want to think about what her attraction to her boss might mean…
Then, an opportunity: a new foodie TV show might provide the exposure they need. An uneasy truce is fine for starters, but making their dreams come true means making some personal and painful sacrifices and soon, there’s more than just the restaurant at stake.

5.0 out of 5 stars A stunning romance!
Reviewed in the United States on July 29, 2022
[Thanks to Harlequin for the complimentary galley & the publisher and Netgalley for the complimentary ARC. All opinions provided are my own.]
Ruby Barrett’s The Romance Recipe (out 06/28!) really wowed me. It was a 5 read for me from beginning to end & I couldn’t wait to get this galley to add to my shelves (look at how cute & sensual the cover is!).
If mutual pining, foodie romance, grumpy + the sunshine (but also the sunshine runs her kitchen thankyouverymuch) sounds good, definitely check this one out!
Amy Chambers hired Sophie Brunet as head chef of her restaurant bc she was talented & semi-famous after being on a realty tv show—she’s also had feelings for her since seeing her on screen.
Unbeknownst to Amy, Sophie—who recently realized that she’s bisexual & even more recently broke up with her fiancé—has feelings for her too. This is one of those books where everything just works together really well. From their mutual pining & appreciation to the moments when each reveals something hurtful, to the times when they cook together—& even including when they fight over the future of the business they both work at…everything made me feel like they were getting closer. Like it was a real emotional relationship each person is invested in.
And then when you add to that the outrageously satisfying steam it’s charismatic & fill-in-your-yummy-food-adjective-of-choice. One hook-up takes place in a car.
I’m so curious to see what Ruby Barrett writes next because this was a fantastic read.
5.0 out of 5 stars Gahhhhhhhhhhhhh

This book is absolutely delicious (sorry for the obligatory cooking pun). It is tender and hilarious and hits you right in the solar plexus. The writing is easy and incisive and irreverent and beautiful and the romance between these two women lives up to that gorgeous clinch on the cover.
Reading it, it feels like a really safe book in the best way. Not in that it doesn’t take risks – it does – but in that it will hold you and protect you and validate you as it does so. It is so affirming in its exploration of the abundant expanse of queer womanhood and desire. This book also has one of the most romantic lines I’ve ever read in a “how do I know I’m in love” conversation where one of the heroine’s brothers says of his partner, “she makes me feel like baseball,” which is honestly the most romantic thing I can imagine anyone saying to me.
I loved it. If you loved Hot Copy, please pick this one up. If you love sapphic romance, please pick this one up. If you love baseball, you will likely not be wholly satisfied because baseball is much less important in this book than in Hot Copy, but still – please pick this one up.
Note: I know that a lot of us are feeling cooking show fatigue so please know: the cooking show in this is a subplot and not at all the setting or integral to the dynamic of the book! 4.5 stars. Thanks to NetGalley and Carina for this ARC.
5.0 out of 5 stars Baby Bi and Lovely Boss!
Reviewed in the United States on July 12, 2022
This is my first Ruby Barrett and won’t be my last. Honestly – I think this is one of my favorite reads of this year. It was easily five stars from the content warnings, to the dedication, to the deeply singable and relatable characters. But what really made it for me – was how Queer it was. Just… being authentically yourself is being Queer enough and that theme was present on every page. I have highlighted an annotated so much of this book because both Amy (openly Lesbian, restaurant owner and all around emotionally constipated lady) and Sophie (baby Queer, late in life bi awakening, and all around feels the Things and cooks amazing food) are just stunning characters with a beautiful love story. Their queerness is never the point of contention in their relationship and despite it bordering on a coming out story (I know! I liked one!) it really is just about finding your place and more importantly your person.
Rarely do I share a specific quote anymore but honestly could share so many but will leave it with this: “You don’t need to have known you were queer since you were a kid. You can go your whole life never touching a woman and you’ll still be queer. It’s not about performing your sexuality or your gender for everyone else. Being queer is about what you know to be true about yourself…”
5.0 out of 5 stars Swoony sapphic romance
Reviewed in the United States on July 12, 2022
Amy is trying to save her restaurant from bankruptcy. Her best hope is for her celebrity head chef, Sophie, to go on a reality TV show. The smoldering attraction between them complicates things further. What happens when they mix business with pleasure?
This is a steamy, emotional read with both heroines struggling to find success and discover their place in the world. It’s a beautiful, swoony sapphic romance with relatable characters and a strong plot.
