In London's Delphi Restaurant, Bohemond - black, French, obese, lonely and a wondrously talented head chef - is bringing all his skills to bear on the task of designing the perfect wedding meal for his close friend Hermione and her womanising fiancé Paris. Then a mysterious love letter changes everything.

Meanwhile, the hotel's ancient band leader Faulkner spends each evening telling the outlandish story of his clashes with supernaturally evil enemies. The more scurrilous members of the Delphi's staff soon begin reporting terrifying encounters with one of Faulkner's creations. Bohemond starts wondering if everything is morphing into something between truth and fable . . .

Building on the promise shown in his first novel Jelly Roll (shortlisted for the Whitbread First Novel Prize), in Sweetmeat Luke Sutherland writes with an intoxicating rhythm and style, proving himself one of the most talented and inventive young writers around.
