(From the publisher):
Tommaso Arista has been named the personal chef to the Duchessina Catherine de'Medici, the only legitimate heir of the staggering Medici fortune and titles. Tommaso, both a chef and an artist, is from a family boudn to the Dukes of Florence by centuries of both service and blood, family in all but name.
Together they leave Florence when her uncle, Pope Clement, calls her to Rome to use her and her dowry in his political manueverings with the crowns of Europe. But Catherine has other plans for her future, and they do not include marriage to the younger son of the King of France.
