Great restaurant - terrible book
Though Brenner's descriptions of the dining experience at Daniel were nicely done, her personal interpretations of things that were happening in the kitchen were maddeningly inaccurate. She sometimes tried to explain cooks' actions or reactions to particular orders, and made it painfully clear that she had no experience on which to base her supposed observation. Too often she inserted peoples' mindsets into her writing, instead of sticking to the observational writing that made the good parts of the book enjoyable. As a cook, it was very frustrating to watch an outsider write as though she knew what other people were thinking.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
