    The Bocuse d'Or is the real-life Top Chef, a biannual cooking competition in France featuring teams from 24 countries vying for the top honors. Named after Paul Bocuse, one of the greatest, most influential living chefs, the Bocuse d'Or has become the most sophisticated and closely watched cook-off in the world. Ironically, though American cuisine now rates among the best in the world, a U.S. team has never placed among the top three in the competition.

    "Polictical propaganda in a book about cooking?"

    Story
    What disappointed you about Knives at Dawn?

    Poor writing. Fascinating story but hindered by awful rambling thoughtless writing. The author for some reason decided this would be a good platform to spew political propaganda. He took on the task of deciding what the entire world (to a person) thought about the US before and after the 2008 elections and presented his thoughts on that as indisputable fact. Thank goodness that time has proven him very wrong and made him look silly and stupid.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Andrew Friedman? Why or why not?

    Not no but h$ll no!


    Have you listened to any of Sean Runnette’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, he is very good. He does a great job with Tufo's books


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Knives at Dawn?

    I would have hired Michael Ruhlman to write this story, confident he could have told the story as it happened in a easy to follow way.


    Any additional comments?

    The book offended me.
