Can anyone help me with the title of this book?
It is an historical novel set in Europe and is about a cook and his apprentice. The apprentice (female) disguises herself as a boy to take the job since the kitchen is filled only with men. The cook discovers the apprentice's secret and shields her from discovery. There was also a sequel where the two travel to the new world. The 2nd book was significantly interior to the first. I seem to remember the young lady having long red hair...
Anyway, I've been giving myself migraines trying to remember the title and was hoping the good people (and fellow avid readers) could help me out. I would be so grateful!
