My story takes place on the shores of Lake Como, Italy, in the mid 1800's. A well established chef is threatened by the opening of a rival restaurant in Menaggio, and must enlist the aid of his most loyal (and persnickety) customer to seek out a fabled herb high in the Alps. Unbeknownst to them, the rival restaurant has sent out agents to find the herb before our heroes! Will this new ingredient keep the chef's restaurant in business? What dangers await our unlikely pair in the mountains?
