Fantastic. Loved it. Completely absorbing from start to finish. Loved the development of all the characters.

Not as strong a read as Kitchen Confidential (some parts were a bit repetitive of that book, and the whole structure was more a collection of essays or riffs that didn't seem as tightly connected as the first). But at the same time, still very worth...more

Really vivid, fascinating voice. A very fun read. I was a bit relieved by the chapter on Stephen Bryan, which acknowledged that not all kitchens were like his, because I think that's an important perspective to his story, and Bourdain admits that ope...more

More of Laura's books…
“A man's strength was supposed to be against the outside world: to fight it back from himself and those he took under his protection: his wife, his children, and for a man strong enough, more people still, people like his employees. To turn it inward, against the very people you had been given that strength to protect, because you couldn't deal with the outward fight, was the ultimate weakness.”
Laura Florand, The Chocolate Touch

“It’s true that if
friends can never count on you being there the next time
they need you, the place they leave for you might be very
small. That’s self-defense. If you abandon people—even if it’s
not your fault—they will eventually get over you and find
someone else. Good for them. But you’re an adult now, and
you can build things as deep and as long-lasting as you want
to. I wish you wouldn’t underestimate your ability to make
people love you. - Aunt Aja”
Laura Florand, The Chocolate Kiss

“She had to lift both hands to illustrate what she meant, but he just let her carry his hand with her, not about to let go. She pushed the free hand toward the one he held, apparently trying to gesture closeness. "Warm," she said again. And then she did something that undid him to the last faint whisper of his soul: she gave his hand a squeeze with fingertips that could just barely reach around his, apparently using him to indicate what she wanted to say. He meant warmth. He meant this word she couldn't find.”
Laura Florand, The Chocolate Touch

Thank you so much! I really appreciate the kind words. Ha, according to Sylvain, *nobody's* chocolate is as good as his, so you have to do the best you can. :)
