    Great Chef, Lousy Storyteller

    Marco Pierre White may be a terrific chef, but he is obviously no storyteller or writer. His co-author and editor were no help either. Virtually every chapter had the same scenario: he starts at a new restaurant and that is when he really and truly becomes a chef. Tedious and boring. Jacques Pepin's and Anthony Bourdain's memoirs were far superior.

    Recomend

    Me as a chef I have read several chef memoirs. An i personally fully enjoyed this book. Yes the chapters seem to favor each other but that had no effect in what I thought. This book is great and very hard to put down.

    Not what I was expecting at all, but a very pleasant surprise!

    Having read Chef Gordon Ramsay´s other two books, I entered ¨The Devil In The Kitchen¨, unfortunately with a biased expectation of Chef White. Their relationship, reminds me of what I have always said about divorces, there are three sides to the stories, His side, Her side, and the truth.<BR/>Chef White´s book was very entertaining and very difficult to put down and I must regret, being a big fan of Chef Ramsay, a far beter read(sorry).<BR/>Their a couple of recipes in the back for the reade to experiment with as well.<BR/>I would suggest Chef White publishing a picture book, a collection of photographs only, that were taken in his kitchens. I would definately buy a couple, based upon the photos I had seen in his book.<BR/>And in closing, if you take this idea and run with it, Chef White, I would greatly appreciate a signed copy, haha.
