I’m going to tell you a little secret that I’m not exactly proud of. I have the palette of a ten-year-old. I’m the farthest thing from a foodie you’ll ever find. Fancy sauces makes me cringe. I once clawed broccoli off my tongue like it was going to kill me if I swallowed it. (I’m not sure it wouldn’t have, frankly) I love simple comfort food—the kind of stuff your kids eat without complaining. But for some reason, whenever Top Chef is on, I sit and watch every minute of it, even though I have zero idea what those folks are plating, probably wouldn’t eat any of it on a dare, and couldn’t make it if my life depended on it. So, this list, which features protagonists who are chefs and bakers, is for all my fellow romance lovers who also can’t wait to see which chef has to “please pack your knives and go.” (It’s also a great list for foodies, even though I totally don’t understand you people.) Enjoy!
