About the Author
Praise For The Girls' Guide to Love and Supper Clubs…
"[An] engaging debut . . . Bate's writing is smart and compelling."
-Publishers Weekly (starred)
"Journalist and debut novelist Bate deftly conjures up a witty, resilient heroine, surrounds her with delightful friends and frenemies, and sends them all on a rollicking quest for love and delicious food."
"Great for foodies . . . [a] book that you can quite easily eat up in one go."
"Hannah is a girl I can relate to. She knows the value of a good carrot cake, and she's sometimes the most awkward girl at the party. Hannah is like all of us: she has dreams that seem so right and yet, so terrifying. She reminds us that dreams are often chocolate frosted and hard-fought, but the key ingredient is believing in yourself."
-Joy Wilson, author of Joy the Baker Cookbook
"[A] delicious debut . . . Hannah is the kind of heroine you'll root for, the descriptions of food are dangerously good, and Bate adds a healthy dash of humor to the mix."
-Sarah Pekkanen, author of These Girls
"Foodie Fiction has a new it girl! Dana Bate's debut, The Girls' Guide to Love and Supper Clubs is the kind of book you just devour. Hannah Sugarman is Bridget Jones with a killer cinnamon bun recipe, and you will cheer her triumphs in the kitchen while you suffer with her trials in love and life. A delicious read from appetizer to dessert."
-Stacey Ballis, author of Good Enough to Eat and Off the Menu
