Yes Chef is the first and only audiobook I've listened to and the best!
It definitely compares with Bourdain's Kitchen Confidential.
No. I have watched him on TV. He's a natural, with a great (Swedish?) dress sense (apart from all those other wonderful culinary and kitchen skills he clearly has.
Mr Samuelsson's memories of his birth mother was petty compelling. Death of his friend in Switzerland.
For me it is just magic to hear this author read his story. I drive lots and, listening to this memoir, I was sometimes moved to tears and sometimes chuckling and laughing as each chapter rolled out. It is a very inspiring memoir. I particularly admire Mr Samuelsson's ability to write in English. Astonishing level of literacy in English. Many native speakers never reach this level of rhythm and rhetorical sophistication.
I haven't finished reading/listening to it. I don't want to finish it! I hope it never ends. I'm sure Mr Samuelsson feels the same way too!!! ;-)
