Like Water for Chocolate by Laura Esquivel

I love the use of food and the whole magic realism thing. Many characters are great, although the love interest Pedro is not sympathetic enough. The ending sucked. Really. The whole last chapter was a mess. But the food as plot device was amazing and worth the read.
