"As in every other profession, chefs love their war stories.
Finally someone had the good sense to collect some of the best in
"Don't Try This at Home."..If you liked "Kitchen Confidential" for
its frank behind-the-scenes glimpses of kitchen life (rather than
the profanity and the heroin), you'll love this book."
--Russ Parsons "Los Angeles Times "
" A fantastic collection of personal stories that depict these great chefs as real people. Readers are certain to learn valuable culinary lessons from chefs' mistakes and their various and creatively solved dilemmas. This book is sure to be enjoyed by culinary fans across the board."
