Blog tour: The Yellow Kitchen

Welcome to the blog tour for The Yellow Kitchen by Margaux Vialleron!

More about the book…

London E17, 2019. A yellow kitchen stands as a metaphor for the lifelong friendship between three women: Claude, the baker, goal-orientated Sophie and political Giulia. They have the best kind of friendship, chasing life and careers; dating, dreaming and consuming but always returning to be reunited in the yellow kitchen.

That is, until a trip to Lisbon unravels unexplored desires between Claude and Sophie. Having sex is one thing, waking up the day after is the beginning of something new.

My impressions…

Friendships can be a minefield, and this stunning debut novel helps us navigate it and explore it in a tender and insightful way. I loved following the intricacies of the three womens' relationships, overhearing their political discussions and tasting their mouth-watering recipes. Set in pre-pandemic London, which is a real character in itself, this is very much a novel of our times.

Three words to describe it. Exquisite. Topical. Gentle.

Do I like the cover? I love it! It feels modern and relevant, just like the book itself.

Have I read any other books by the same author? No, this is an incredibly debut that I’m sure will be followed by more greatness.
