What a delectable read! From Toronto to South Africa, NYC to Montreal, Gail takes us all on her delicious and tender journey of self discovery. It's a lovely read about finding yourself and what you love to do. I loved every bit of this book--It's well written, engaging, thoughtful., funny and sensitive. Not just for Top Chef fans but anyone looking for a really great read about a smart, young woman's journey to be the one of the most well respected food personalities today.

A lot of people wonder "Who is Gail Simmons" & "How did she get to where she is today"? Our questions are answered in a fun and anecdotal tale of Gail's life's journey, from growing up in Toronto to her fateful accomplishments in the New York food world. I loved reading this book cover-to-cover. I have such an appreciation for Gail, her passion for food and her commitment to being true to who she is and where she comes from. Great job and can't wait to tell my friends and family about this must read book.

‘Talking With My Mouth Full’ is not only a wonderful story of Gail’s life thus far, but also an ever-important reminder that hard work and determination are two necessary ingredients on the path to a rewarding and successful career. From the outside, Gail’s success on ‘Top Chef’ may appear to be nothing but luck – prompting many individuals to assume they too can achieve such success overnight. But her story reveals her path to reality television had to do much more to do with years of work, long nights, and, perhaps most importantly, trusting the doors that open along the way. This book is an enjoyable, light read with a powerful underlying message.

As someone who subscribes to Food and Wine Magazine and enjoys watching Top Chef, I was looking forward to reading this book. Unfortunately, it reads like a marketing fluff piece. If the author was interviewing with you for a job, this might be the addendum to her resume. There is no meat in this book, like many other chef/foodie memoirs. It never goes below the surface of how much Gail Simmons enjoys her career and the people she works with. While I applaud her possitive attitude that is evident in the book, there is not much story here.

Well, if we use culinary parlance about books, I'd say that another author's book, MY BELOVED WORLD, needed to braise a tad longer, while Simmons' tome is ready-to-be-devoured, tasty ad fun. Actually, I wish this book were longer, because it was a delight to skip through. Simmons has a clear yet amusing way of relating her experiences, and after this I realized that I should have gone into the culinary arts as a career. I loved her regaling us about Peter Kump's culinary teachings: I remember that era well - I was a wife and mother and every time I read his ads I wanted to go to his school so badly, although I have joined the James Beard Foundation. Okay - this book is a great amuse-bouche: I hope Simmons serves up another!
