What with all the Christmas baking, I haven't actually tried any of the recipes yet but I did bookmark quite a few. The stories are entertaining. What I particularly like is that this book resulted from a restaurant chef being stuck cooking in his NYC apartment kitchen while his new restaurant was under construction. I have a close friend who is a chef and I've noticed that he cooks a lot differently than I do at home. It adds a whole level of difficulty when you only have 4 burners, one oven, two feet of counter space and only one of each kind of pan! Plus no slaves to do the prep work.
