Het hemelse gerecht is an entertaining read. It is the story of two sisters running a restaurant, one of them cooking, the other running the restaurant business. As they reach the top in culinary achievement, being awarded a Michelin star, they hit the bottom in their social affairs. An ever more unlikely tale is spun, which ends in a apocalyptic catastrophe of water, fire, death and disease. ( )

A really nice little book! Two sisters run a restaurant and both have an affair with the hired help (he is called their "husband"). The restaurant (which they all live above) is situtated in a village and the sisters do anything to make sure the villagers do not find out about this irregular arrangement.

One day the "husband" declares he is going to move out: he does not want to be involved with them anymore. The sisters are very upset and lock him in an attic room. The villagers think he has (finally) taken a well-deserved holiday.

Things take a turn for the worse with the husband not being looked after very well, his little daughter showing up, children in the village falling ill with a tummy disease, the awful GP insisting on a date with one of the sisters.

There are bodies and fires, a flood and very hot weather, and some haute cuisine. Read it and enjoy! However, if you can't read Dutch, you'll need to wait for the translation.... ( )
