Anna Caputo narrates Elliot’s (Sadie on a Plate) enemies-to-lovers contemporary romance featuring two New York City food reviewers. A battle ensues when food critics Bennett and Julie clash over which style of review is better: print or social media. Julie struggles to grow her @JulieZeeEatsNYC persona around her day job as an executive assistant. Bennett is the newly appointed food writer for a major NYC newspaper. After a public argument results in lots of social media buzz for Bennett’s publication and Julie’s online platform, the two agree to a competition reviewing the same places. As they dine on New York City’s plethora of unique culinary delights, their animosity wanes, and they soon realize that the heat between them isn’t coming just from the kitchen. Caputo’s pleasant voice entices listeners as she brings the characters and the scrumptious foods they enjoy to life. As she details Julie and Bennett’s foodie journey toward love, Caputo spices her animated performance with the right amount of humor. Listeners will be entertained and drawn into their tale, despite many characters having similar voices.
VERDICT A delicious performance that will leave listeners both satisfied with the story and hungry for some delicious meals.
