5.0 out of 5 stars a great read and a warning to all wannabe chefs!, 30 Dec. 2011
I've been following 'Lennie Nash's' blog for some time and found his stories and experiences a great read and I've willed him on as he's tried to make it as a chef. As many a keen amateur cook I've harboured ambitions about living the dream and becoming a chef, but Alex/Lennie actually went out and tried it. His experience should serve as an amusing warning to all of us amateur gourmets and dinner party hosts as he details the back breaking work and the characters that exist in the restaurant world from the local pub all the way up to the giddy heights of michelin stars.

It's candid, amusing and difficult to put down once you've started. A great read and should be a set text if you're considering a change of career, or god forbid, applying to masterchef.

1.0 out of 5 stars you take your chances...., 18 May 2011
Unfortunately the one I got was faulty, it doesn't work correctly and you have to adjust how far you push the headphones in to the jack socket. In particular it just does not work properly with headphones with an inline microphone. I tested with two sets of heapdhones, speakers, iphone, ipad and laptop, yet the same problem on all of them. Others seem to have working items so it seems you take pot luck and for the price I can't be bothered to return it
