A book for foodies, chefs, aspiring cooks, those with a history with gastronomy or restaurants and enjoy a good read on the subject will greatly enjoy this title. The story is quite a journey by a journalist who decided to immerse himself into the culinary world in such a way as not many have.
Michael Kramer presents this book in a consistant and pleasant manner. Some of his mispronunciations are a bit grating but he is presented with a challenge array of languages and kitchen lingo.He even manages to throw in a few sometimes laughable accents.
For those that complain about the language - take it for what it is... the way of many kitchens and restaurants. I'm sure that the actual events likely contained even more colorful language than what actually ended up in the book.
