I enjoyed the concept of this, and reading about all of the food. However, the characters we very arrogant, which made them unlikable. At one point, Jan makes a mistake (he sees it as a failure) and he cries. One of the trainees comes out to tell him silly jokes and helps him pull out of the depression. This was the most sympathetic scene in the entire book...if there are more of these, the series will be worth reading. If not, the arrogance will probably turn me off from reading more.
