"Well reported and heartfelt, Ruhlman communicates the passion that draws the acolyte to this precise and frantic profession."—The New York Times Book Review Just over a decade ago, journalist Michael Ruhlman donned a chef's jacket and houndstooth-check pants to join the students at the Culinary Institute of America, the country's oldest and most influential cooking school. But The Making of a Chef is not just about holding a knife or slicing an onion; it's also about the nature and spirit of being a professional cook and the people who enter the profession. As Ruhlman—now an expert on the fundamentals of cooking—recounts his growing mastery of the skills of his adopted profession, he propels himself and his readers through a score of kitchens and classrooms in search of the elusive, unnameable elements of great food. Incisively reported, with an insider's passion and attention to detail, The Making of a Chef remains the most vivid and compelling memoir of a professional culinary education on record.

Chef Gretchen Hanson began cooking at the age of two and a half. Food was safe, food was comforting, but most of all, food provided the nurturing deeply lacking in her own family. When It's Done: the Making of a Chef winds through her life story beginning with an abusive childhood, addiction and far too many marriages, culminating in her becoming an award-winning chef and restauranteur. Each story is part of the path that brought Chef Hanson to the place where she could cook for people with compassion, and through cooking, find forgiveness. Chef Hanson explores her weaknesses as a person and addresses them with the fire that allowed her to become a person who cooks to nurture and cooks with love. A coming of age novel filled with self-deprecating humor and failures of mythic proportions, When It's Done: The Making of a Chef takes the reader on a story of redemption. This poignant memoir is layered with food and forgiveness. Told with acerbic wit, this is not a touchy feely story about eating kind food: it is the story of the sordid back alleyways behind the kitchen, the seductive passion of the nightly line, the egocentric narcissism of the profession and the breaking free from the traditional bonds that define us.Chef Hanson deconstructs the making of a chef into the basic ingredients of learning to live a life from scratch. Chef Gretchen Hanson is an award-winning chef, author and storyteller. In her intimate memoir on becoming a chef, she explores the dark side of the restaurant business, seduction of the nightly line and the egocentric narcissism of the profession, as well as the ultimate joy of feeding people bountiful and wholesome food. Hanson chronicles her circuitous journey to becoming a chef with wrenching honesty and deprecating humor. Each chapter is accompanied by recipes designed to soothe, seduce and comfort as only authentic loving food can do while learning to live a life from scratch. Originally from Southern California and the Mexican border, Gretchen's sassy Global Eco-Fusion style cuisine is inspired by street food from her travels around the world. Chef Hanson shares her unique recipes created by sourcing local and seasonal ingredients from farmers' markets and offering a simple and accessible approach for the home cook.Published by Breaking Rules Publishing
