It starts with a Girl, and then adds a Boy. They meet amidst the colorful aisles of Le Supermarché. They blend well and marry, and move to a little cottage in the country. But the Girl begins to curdle in her milquetoast life, and returns to the market to find comfort and peace. Instead she finds a strange old man, who offers her a recipe for change; a delicious but dangerous solution to her marital woes.

A Fairy Tale in Foodspeak, Le Supermarché is the story of cream colored romance and frosty revenge, wrapped in wit and warmth and topped with bits of bacon.
