Technique is everything for perfectionist chef-in-training Leo; that is until he met Dock, who taught Leo preparing food is a sensual experience to be savored and shared. 

The Birches is an intriguing plot of obtaining goals and happiness. Leo is obsessed with proving himself worthy of the faith his supporting parents had in his ability to be a great chef. Leo’s technique is the best in his class. However, Leo’s visually appealing dishes lacked taste appeal. Dock has no formal training, yet his dishes are in demand, proof by the always packed restaurant. Dock is very attracted to the uptight Leo and decides to romance him with cooking lessons. Dock teaches Leo the true technique for preparing a savory dish is the passionate blending of the ingredients creating an orgy in a bowl the same way a man would caress his lover.  

Xavier Axelson has created an impressive, as well as an especially enjoyable saga.
