it was ok
Read in July, 2011

Well written and interesting but with precious little about the chef's life -- I think about 75% of the book was reminiscences about family, youth, waywardness, growth, education, marriage, in-laws and children. It was all mildly compelling, but it really needed a new subtitle because only a couple of chapters really deal with the nuts and bolts of being a chef or owning your own place. That being said, the passage on preparing perfect eggs is worth revisiting.
