This book was slow going, at first, with the first 40-50 pages mostly focusing on background, setup and dramatis personae. After that, the author delves into the competition and preparation in extensive and exhaustive detail. I wish the pictures had been more focused on the kitchen and menu rather than the people - follow the development of the competition menu was completely engrossing, and I'd have liked to see some visuals!
