The 4-Hour Chef: The Simple Path to Cooking Like a&hellip by Timothy Ferriss
5 of 6 people found the following review helpful
I'm a big fan of Timothy Ferris. I love his whacky take on life and almost always learn loads from him. This book however is Meath for real cooking starters- think " how to make a salad", " how to boil an egg" etc. The science was unusually impenetrable and quite dull. While he does pepper the book with anecdotes they didn't seem to capture my imagination quite like those in his previous books. Sometimes they felt incomplete- i was reeled in, but left unsatisifed. it also felt as if i had heard some already, which could be an impression, or because his lifestyle is more familiar.

I had high hopes for this book. Sadly the meadering prose makes a potentially rivetting book dead dull! I stuch with it to the end in the hope that it would redeem itself. It did. It ended!
