    "A great listen"

    I admit it, I am a fan of any books on cooking, from Bill Buford's Heat to Tony Bourdain's Kitchen Confidential. This book is the first one I have listened to rather than read. The narrator is excellent, and I can close my eyes and imagine it is Chef Boulud speaking to me.

    It's not a long book, but fascinating to listen to.

    "Essential Instruction Manuel for Serious Chefs!"
    Where does Letters to a Young Chef rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Definitely in my top three audiobooks.


    What does Mario Brassard bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Mr. Brassard's narration was very good.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are interested in becoming a chef or just fascinated by those who choose this profession, this book covers all the bases. It is a must-read for anyone who wants to learn more about what it takes to become a great chef, the sacrifices one must be willing to make and the passion required to become successful.

    A school administrator and avid reader and listener of books. At least an hour of every day is spent in the car, and that's where the bulk of my listening is done. I tend to listen to books on "faster" mode so I can get through more books!

    "Read Samuleson instead"

    This book is best enjoyed by those pursuing a life in the kitchen. While Boulud is something of a food god, which I can attest to, having eaten at several of his restaurants, this book was not written for us mere foodie mortals. It really is designed for the future chef and despite my admiration of Boulud, I just really didn't want to listen to a discussion on how salt should be used as a young chef. There were some good nuggets in there for us foodies, but generally, this book should be skipped and go to Samuelson's "Yes, Chef," instead.
