Chef's Story: 27 Chefs Talk About What Got Them into the Kitchen (PagePerfect NOOK Book) by Dorothy Hamilton, Patric Kuh

Twenty-seven extraordinary chefs tell the personal stories behind their culinary triumphs.

Over the past decade, our culture's interest in the world's great chefs has grown phenomenally. Once known to only the most dedicated gourmets, these supremely talented men and women have become high-profile stars with restaurants as their stages—masterful artists working in the medium that binds us all: food!

A wonderful companion volume to The French Culinary Institute's hit public television series, Chef's Story takes us into the private world of more than two dozen maestros of the kitchen—twenty-seven remarkable individuals who share their memories, their beliefs, and their passion for quality to reveal what helped them all become modern culinary legends.
