Discover Jarrett Melendez and Danica Brine's award-winning, Eisner-nominated debut graphic novel in a beautiful deluxe hardcover edition featuring never-before-seen bonus content!
When recent college grad Ben lands a job at a restaurant, he soon finds that his favorite dish is spicy sous-chef Liam . . .
Now that college is over, English graduate Ben Cook is on the job hunt looking for something-anything-related to his passion for reading and writing, but the job hunt isn't going great. When he stumbles upon a "Now Hiring, No Experience Necessary" sign outside a restaurant, he jumps at the chance to land his first job. But when Ben begins developing a crush on Liam, one of the other super-dreamy chefs at the restaurant, and starts ditching his old college friends and his writing job plans, his future becomes much less clear. Will he follow his writing dreams or will he see what cooks up between him and Liam? Watch things start to really heat up in the kitchen in this queer new adult graphic novel written by Jarrett Melendez, illustrated by Danica Brine, colored by Hank Jones, and lettered by Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou.
New bonus content will include a foreword by New York Times bestselling author Kami Garcia, author Q&A, new recipes, and behind-the-scenes process art!
