Editorial Reviews

Kitchen Arts & Letters Newsletter
A well-connected, highly regarded culinary career guru who is currently an instructor at the CIA's New Hyde Park campus, Chalmers presents a very useful guide to a dizzying array of food occupations, ranging from chef, butcher, and nutritionist to bee keeper, kitchen designer, and wild game farmer. Her knowing and pithy descriptions of duties and requisite qualifications are often supplemented by enlightening accounts of their career paths written by people prominent in their field: Betty Fussell on becoming a food historian, Jonathan King on the founding of Stonewall Kitchens, Sidney Mintz on specializing as a food anthropologist. Great perspectives here.
