Food connoisseurs, junkies, and interested generalists, this is the conversation for you. Food journalist and author Michael Ruhlman moderates a conversation at New York’s famed 92nd Street Y venue with leading chefs Anthony Bourdain, Gabrielle Hamilton, and Eric Ripert, true restaurant legends.
The chefs discuss their formative years in the restaurant business. Sit back and enjoy Bourdain’s familiar, smoky voice as he describes entering a trade that, at the time, "only attracted losers" and how he found pride for the first time in his life as a dishwasher. Hear Ripert’s account of how a piece of artichoke can bring out the flavor of a fish. This audiobook is best enjoyed over a sauce that nearly broke a cook’s back.
Bourdain is the executive chef at Brasserie Les Halles, the author of the best-selling book Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly, and the host of the popular Food Network series, A Cook's Tour. Panelist Gabrielle Hamilton is the chef and owner of Prune, and Eric Ripert is the chef at Le Bernardin, both New York City culinary landmarks. Moderator Michael Ruhlman is a journalist and author of The Soul of a Chef and The Making of a Chef.

amusing approach to the back of the house of resturants with great insights into the past of being a chef and the future chefs...Anthony is so wry.
I want to feel good when I complete a story & am a little harsh on depressing ones. There are a few sad ones that I love but not many.
I did enjoy listening to the stories by the group but I felt like I could have seen the this on PBS.
