An amazing story. I've been a fan of Chef Achatz for years and knew bits and pieces of the story but this was an insightful and truly inspirational story. I couldn't put it down.

My wife is a foodie who's favorite TV Channel is the Food Channel. I kid her about that all the time, but I shouldn't because she's a great cook. Anyway, she read this book first and said I MUST read it too. I was a bit reticent about doing that, but did. It is truly an incredible story about a young man who, despite suffering from, of all things, tongue cancer, strives to be a great, innovative chef. Probably the most inspiring story I have ever read. And then....see my headline!

Chef Achatz is amazing. His story is incredible. His drive, his passion, and strive to be the best is what drives me to be the best chef I possibly can be. His story of survival is amazing. I love how the story is being told through both Grant's accounts and Nick Kokonas's accounts. I feel that I'm hearing the story, not from two business partners, but from two brothers. I laughed and cried reading this book. It was truly inspiring.

What an absolute treasure. Achatz is as wonderful a writer as he is a chef. As much as I enjoy the usual I-cook-food-in-beautiful-places chef memoirs, it was really a terrific pleasure to read a well-written, non-fluff, real world memoir from one of the world's greatest chefs. Thanks, Chef.
