What People are Saying About This
NEW YORK (CBS) Fine Dining Madness is the wickedly funny new tell-all book of behind-the-scenes, in front of the house restaurant life, describes the three-second rule. If your steak takes a dramatic fall to the kitchen floor and is retrieved in three seconds, it can continue to your table. John Galloway, a food service vet in five states, has written war stories of himself and other abused staffers by themselves or patrons and how they react. Subtitled The Rules & Realities of Fine Dining, this book offers priceless insights on what to do and especially what not to do, from the initial scouting of restaurants to the phone call for reservations and all the rest of the way to a successful, or disastrous dinner. Admittedly written from the insiders’ point of view, it blazes a take-no-prisoners path through the industry, and is hilarious. Fine Dining Madness is published by iUniverse.
