Review:
This guy's not kidding! Well, he is kidding, but he's serious, too. Buck Peterson takes a generally disgusting subject and makes it hilariously funny. And edible...

Review:
This book is for real.As a chef for 20years on long Isand and upstate new york,I can tell you all this and more goes on every day.I have given coppies of this book to some of my cook freinds and we roar for hours.I have been grabbing hot pans out of the oven for years and I am sure I have left a trail of hidden bar towels from syracuse to the hamptons.It takes a special person to want to do this kind of work.Dont be decived by the food channel.Im sure that behind the seans at emiril live there is a peruvian chain gang doing the deep prep and chop chop.great book.read it
