I started out really enjoying this book . . .

. . . but got more and more disgusted with the author, the longer I read. I loved the French chef, and many of his nuggets of wisdom. I only wish that there had been more of them. Unfortunately, as the book went on, I learned less and less from the chef and more and more about what I can only describe as the self-serving, narcissistic musings of the author, and how unlucky he is with women. I found his mishmash of misguided pseudo-Franciscan philosophy and self-help "awareness" to be off-putting in the extreme.

If a reader wants a spiritual commentary on food, allow me to suggest "The Supper of the Lamb" by RF Capon or the film "Babette's Feast". Better yet, both.

But give this book a wide berth.
