Wife of the Chefby Courtney Febbroriello
Synopses & Reviews
Wife of the Chef is at once a no-holds-barred memoir of restaurant life and a revealing look at married life. For Courtney Febbroriello, the two are intertwined. She and her husband own anAmerican bistro in Connecticut. He's the chef, so naturally he gets all the credit. She has the role of keeping things running, but she's the wife, so she remains anonymous or invisible orboth.
Febbroriello comes front and center here, detailing the everyday challenges she faces-taking over dish-washing duty, bailing waiters out of jail, untangling the immigration laws, cajolinglazy suppliers, handling unreasonable customers, and a host of other emergency duties. She pokes fun at people who take food and wine-and the chef--too seriously, with witty comments on everything from"chef envy" to the much-ballyhooed James Beard Awards.
Spiced with a healthy spoonful of feminism and enriched with a cup of humor, Wife of the Chef is the tastiest"dish" of the season.
"From the Hardcover edition."
