The Devil in the Kitchen: Sex, Pain, Madness, and the Making of a Great Chef
“There hasn’t been a food memoir this deliciously wicked since Anthony Bourdain’s Kitchen Confidential.”—Portland Oregonian
The Devil in the Kitchen is legendary chef Marco Pierre White’s memoir of growing up working-class in Leeds and going on to become a king in the culinary world—the original celebrity chef. The first British chef (and the youngest chef anywhere) to win three Michelin stars—and also the only one to ever give them all back—is known equally for his astonishing talent and for being a chain-smoking, pot-throwing enfant terrible of the kitchen. In The Devil in the Kitchen he takes readers on a revealing and raucous ride, featuring some of the biggest names in the food world and beyond. It’s truly a decadent feast for anyone who loves food or just a great story.
