English sample translation available!
A culinary story about the longing for comfort
Elsa wants to cook herself to happiness – from the chippy to the gourmet restaurant
The most sensual novel of the season
For Elsa, cooking is so much more than just preparing a meal. It’s only in the kitchen that she manages to put her troubles behind her and dream of the possibility of another life. She has also set herself a goal - at least the rough direction of a goal – she wants to go north, to the sea. And, in the process, get as far away as possible from her family in the south.
In her debut novel, Anne Köhler manages to portray big emotions - delicately, sensitively and touchingly – and allows them to unfold within these unique atmospheric cooking- and kitchen scenes. “I’ll be there in a minute” is the story of a young woman, who, on a journey of self-discovery is once again united with her family – and maybe with a new love.
