  • I love stories about food Books, movies, documentaries So when I saw this short Book I jumped at the chance to review it The Cook is the story of a young chef as he finds his way in the culinary world Trying different cuisines, working in kitchens, and even opening a restaurant of his own While reading this book the life of a chef came alive It was like a documentary in a book form My only wish was there was read This book releases March 26, 2019 Thank you to Netgalley and the publ I love storie [...]


  • I did not expect to finish this novel in one sitting, but here I am at midnight writing a review

    I love food I expect most people do but I don t consider myself a foodie , however, even I could appreciate the nuances and subtleties of food as presented in this work The Cook follows the intense life of Mauro, an economics student turned chef who flits between jobs and school, never settling down for long His social life and health deteriorate as he works 70 hour weeks but he can t stop [...]


  • I received this from netgalley in exchange for a review Mauro finds his path in life baking cakes as a child cooking for his friends as a teenager a series of studies, jobs, and travels a failed love affair a successful business a virtual nervous breakdown and at the end a rediscovery of his hunger for cooking, his appetite for life.Fast read Focusing on cooking, the terminology, and lots of foodie talk It really did feel like some kind of a documentary As much as I really wanted I received this [...]


  • I received an advance reading copy of this book thanks to Farrar, Straus and Giroux via NetGalleyThis was a quick little read but I must say de Kerangal has a gift with written word Penned beautifully and with such a lyrical translation from Taylor, I was blown away by the impact the prose had on me whilst reading.Having grown up in the hospitality industry nothing in Mauro s story surprised me I know the tough slog it requires to be a chef, the sheer dedication it takes to live your dre [...]


  • Thanks to NetGalley for providing an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.This was a wonderful and surprisingly quick read about the coming of age of a young chef I was drawn first by the book cover and then by the mouth watering descriptions of the dishes that Mauro has mastered throughout his journey The only issue I have is that I wish it s longer so we can enjoy Mauro s journey


  • This was an ARC Giveaway Lyrical and enchanting to read about haute cuisine and the life of a chef Especially nice to be transported to the world of French Restaurants Reccomend if you want a short read and you enjoy reading about tasty menus A nice change from what I normally read.


  • Description du parcours atypique d un jeune chef fran ais, racont par un je inconnu.J ai eu l impression que le concept tait tomb plat et qu il manquait de la passion ou un autre je ne sais quoi D ue de cette lecture.
