Description
Information
To be published in nine languages around the world, The Foodtaster is a literary sensation. This wonderful novel, supposedly translated from an ancient diary, is a rollicking tale set during the height of the Renaissance, where cruelty, poison and conspiracy are as much a part of life as sumptuous feasts and unrestrained festivities.

When a starving peasant is appointed as the duke's foodtaster, he can't believe his salvation. But it's a hazardous job for poor Ugo DiFonte who must learn to contend with the duke's enemies and palace intrigues, all the while trying to protect his beautiful daughter from the eyes of powerful and dangerous men.

'The Foodtaster' is a story of a man who lives by his wits to save himself and those he loves, and in doing so, realises the honour in being true to oneself.
