I have read all of Anthony Bourdain's books, so when I saw his one sentence review on the cover "Magnificent. Simply the best memoir by a chef ever. Ever." I thought, "Wow. This has really gotta be good!" Unfortunately, I can't say I disagree with Mr. Bourdain, 'cause honestly, I've never read a chef's memoir before (unless you count his landmark Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly), but if this is as good as a chef memoir can get, I'm afraid I won't be reading any more chef's memoirs.
