Profile Picture

Stella Madison is the daughter of a famous chef and the owner of Open Kitchen, a restaurant that features local chefs. Though her parents have been separated for six years, they remain exceedingly close, which makes Stella's life all the more sweeter. When the local newspaper offers here a job as an summer intern (with the help of her parents reputation of course), Stella finds it hard to resist the pay. There's just one little problem: Stella must write about food and she is not a foodie. Her idea of a savory meal would be McDonald's-not Normandy style onion soup.
