this book gives you the background of what it takes to be a good chef and the struggles of mr. white's life to get there. enjoyed reading it from beginning to end.

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.

I had the pleasure of meeting the ¿rock star chef¿ at a reading in NYC and he does not disappoint. He is deliciously salty and it is no wonder he has garnered the reputation that he has. Marco¿s love and respect for food is absolute. He is a dying breed. The majority of today¿s celebrity chefs are not in their kitchens at all, but orchestrating them from afar and that distance results in the sacrifice of the preparation, cooking, presentation and passion. On that note, as illuminating as it was to learn about his rise as a 3 stared Michelin chef, the second half of the book rambled on and seemed more like an opportunity for Marco to make peace with the conflicting moments in his past with people, places and things. Making peace is very cathartic but in this case, not the best reading. Thanks Marco for signing my book and for your cooking tips¿ I appreciate your comment about the obligatory use of pepper by most cooks to seasons their dishes- just plain wrong and for the advice on cooking vegetables, my broccoli is Spring incarnate.
