Leah Chase is a remarkable woman.  Book gives good history and insights into what makes her tick.  Only thing better would be an updated version on her life since 2002.  Katrina didn't stop her, despite that fact that restaurant was under water.  Her positive outlook on life got her through, and she's back in the kitchen at age 90+.  I'd love to read the details of that period of time.
