Rate this:
In this in-depth, behind-the-scenes tell-all about the lives of women chefs, journalist Charlotte Druckman walks the reader into the world behind the hot line. But this is a different perspective on the kitchen: one told through the voices of more than 70 of the best and brightest women cooking today, These are female chefs performing culinary and domestic high wire acts: juggling sharp knives, battering heat, bruising male egos, and working endless hours, often while raising small children and living from paycheck to paycheck. How they deal with pressures, the expectations, the successes and failures, makes for absorbing reading.

Terrible pretentious book. It was a major disappointment. Charlottle Druckman spends too much of the book prattling on about herself and her opinions. She tries too hard to be cleverly hipster and pop-culture referential. I would have rather read more about the fascinating people that were purportedly the topic of her book. This book and its author exemplifies many of the traits that I despise and loathe about foodies.
