Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In his second in-depth foray into the world of professional cooking, Michael Ruhlman journeys into the heart of the profession. Observing the rigorous Certified Master Chef exam at the Culinary Institute of America, the most influential cooking school in the country, Ruhlman enters the lives and kitchens of rising star Michael Symon and renowned Thomas Keller of the French Laundry. This fascinating book will satisfy any reader's hunger for knowledge about cooking and food, the secrets of successful chefs, at what point cooking becomes an art form, and more. Like Ruhlman's The Making of a Chef, this is an instant classic in food writing-one of the fastest growing and most popular subjects today.

Synopsis:

Ruhlman's storytelling combines with his immense love of food to reveal the people whose goal is to serve perfect food. Through talking with the most talented young chefs in the business, Ruhlman takes readers on a journey toward the soul of a chef.

If you ever wished you were someone else, this book is another look at how others live. In this case students trying to become a Certified Master Chef at the Culinary Institute of America. In a fine sequel to The Making of a Chef, Michael Ruhlman takes us deeper into the world or the upper level of professional chefs. He looks at several styles of cooking and ponders why some restaurant will work and another will fail. A delicious read
