Twenty-seven extraordinary chefs tell the personal stories behind their culinary triumphs.
Over the past decade, our culture's interest in the world's great chefs has grown phenomenally.

Review: Chef's Story: 27 Chefs Talk About What Got Them into the KitchenUser Review - Nancy Dardarian - Goodreads
I enjoyed the first person narrative from 27 chefs about the development of their skills, what has inspired them, and how they stay fresh and interested. So many of them experienced the birth of their passion for cooking at home - with talented home cooks creating good meals every day. Read full review
Review: Chef's Story: 27 Chefs Talk About What Got Them into the KitchenUser Review - Anthony Spadaro - Goodreads
One of the best books I've read about what got these people cooking. I'm biased, I've worked for FCI, worked for quite a few of these Chefs, but it's great to read about their personal reasons for entering this insane industry. Should be a must read for every cook entering this world. Read full review
