The Cassandra Cookbook
Reviewed by: Marquist
A bakery is a wonderful business. There's nothing like the smell and taste of freshly baked goodies made from scratch. Then, there's the thrill of seeing your customers enjoying your baking. For anyone that loves to bake, has a passion for baked goods, and enjoys the art of food, owning a bakery would be ideal.
In the book, The Cassandra Cookbook written by Shawn James, Cassandra Lee has dreamed of taking over “Cassandra”, her parents’ bakery since she was a little girl. Cassandra’s parents, Carlton and Helen Lee, opened the bakery when their daughter was a baby. Started in 1974, Cassandra has been a staple in the downtown Brooklyn community for several years. The well-known bakery is famous for providing baked goods that make your taste buds pop with flavor.
Cassandra’s dream turns into a nightmare when her parents tell her they plan to retire and sell the bakery. Corporate giant ITC Foods makes Cassandra’s parents an offer they cannot refuse. As if things couldn’t get any worse, Cassandra catches her down low fiancé Gerald Davis in the arms of another man days before their wedding and honeymoon.
Although she is devastated at her parents’ decision to sell the bakery, Cassandra convinces them to let her represent them in the transaction so she can ensure they receive the best deal possible. Simon James, the ITC Foods representative assigned to complete the Cassandra bakery deal, begins to have feelings for Cassandra turning their professional relationship into a personal one. Simon later makes a confession to Cassandra which leaves her heartbroken. To smooth things over, Simon comes up with an idea in order to finally make Cassandra’s dream come true.
