Full of dark comic invention, Vinegar Soup is a fantasy with a flavour all its own... an epic romance of true love, travel, and food

Gilbert Firestone, fat and fifty, works in the kitchen of the Hercules Cafe and dreams of travel and adventure. When his wife drowns in a pan of soup, he abandons the kitchen and takes his family to start a new life in a jungle hotel in Africa.

But rain, pygmies and crazy chickens start to turn his dreams into nightmares. And then the enormous Charlotte arrives with her brothel on wheels.
