It\'s a great day for Greece when Perseus defeats the dreaded kraken. But victory begins to lose its lustre when the remains of the beast swamp the shores and fishing nets of the Aegean. Now after weeks of kraken cakes, kraken kabobs, kraken fritters, and kraken stew, everybody is getting decidedly sick of kraken - none more so than Chef Pelops.\n

In response to the \"kraken crisis, \" the city of Athens announces the inaugural Bronze Chef competition. Normally, Pelops would jump at the chance to prove himself the best celebrity chef in Greece. The trouble is, the competition\'s secret ingredient is sure to be kraken - and, having once offended Poseidon, Pelops can\'t cook kraken to save his life.\n

To make matters worse, a loathsome rival has vowed to win the contest by fair means or foul. Now, Pelops must overcome the sea god\'s curse to show once and for all that he is the better chef - a task made all the more difficult by the insufferable antics of a most unexpected relative...\n

Kraken Bake, the sequel to the critically acclaimed Food for the Gods by Karen Dudley (a finalist for the Boney Blithe Award, The High Plains Awards, and the Aurora Awards) mirthfully re-imagines the world of ancient Greece with a modern spin.

Kraken is for sale everywhere in Athens but Chef Pelops cannot cook it owing to a slight misunderstanding with Poseidon - A really fun sequel where everything seems to go wrong for our hero chef but then all gets wrapped up in a nice package.
